You sent this message to me, George W. Bush, at my secret email address. 
Please don't reveal this private address to anyone, and in exchange, I will 
split the winnings with you. Here's what I need you to do: Cash the 
winning lottery ticket, keep half for yourself, and send the rest -- small 
bills, please -- to me. My address is 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, 
D.C., 20006. Thank you for being so honest, and making such a strong effort 
to find me. God bless you.

George W. Bush
President, The United States of America
