Dear Mr. VP,
I just want to be clear that this is an incredibly misleading headline…fake news, even: NASA is hiring a Planetary Protection Officer to protect Earth from alien harm.
At first I thought, “FINALLY. A perfect government job for me.”
Then I clicked in and found out I’d actually need to know things about bacteria from other planets. Nope.
Still — perhaps I could count on you to write me a recommendation, given this rapport we’ve built? I feel like it’s the least you can do, given how many letters (195) I’ve written to you.
