As Hunter Thompson showed us this morning, there’s nothing wrong with writing candidly in a cover letter to a prospective employer.  Daryl here is an earnest and energetic leading man who just finished playing a rapist, and that’s fine.  The only problem I see is his child-like handwriting, which makes it look as if he scrawled this with a safety pencil during crafts time at the asylum.  My suggestion?  Next time, Daryl, don’t hand write the letter. You want this to look professional. Instead, try cutting the letters out of magazines and pasting them on the page.  It’s like owning a home printing press!  No charge for the free advice.  Good luck, Daryl!
