Weird Al Yankovic is a national treasure

To the editor:

July 2nd I bought my wife who turned 60 that day tickets to see Weird Al Yankovic. I had no idea where the Foellinger theater was located or anything. We had VIP passes, two rows from the stage.

I can say this much. Mr. Yankovic is a national treasure. I cried from so much laughter. After the show, 200 folks (VIP) were served food. Then we had a photo shoot with Al. Then after the photo shoot this man signed autographs. He shook my hand. I told him thank you for making my wife and me feel happy and alive.

If that is not a national treasure I do not know what is.
