After reading the in-depth interview of President Bush in the February Word Ways, I decided to contact Vice President Quayle and ask him some tough questions. Quayle's secretary informed me that Bush was so pleased with the Morton interview that he issued an order, called the Mome Memo, which officially mandated all government personnel to speak and write in anagrams based on any variants of their names. Naturally, a few people had to change their names to comply with the new rule. The vice president decided to limit himself to the letters in DANIEL QUAYLE since they are the ones he's most familiar with. Like Bush, he's a man of letters -- only fewer letters.
"Lead Quayle In!,"
