A great man :-)

A tip for a more fictionous story about the last emperor of the United States i the story "3 Septembers and a january" in the comic book series "The Sandman" written by Neil Gaiman, where some of the Endless siblings (Dream vs Despair, Desire and Delirium) wager a bet over his soul. "His madness keeps him sane".

Next time you see me at my cabin, you may read the story there, because I got my whole comic book collection there.

By the way, wedding invitations will be posted in a week or two, check your mailbox.
