Hi ACC-tion heroes! Put down that egg nog and turn down "This Christmas," it's time for a really quick Holiday Special. And this one has nothing to do with comics, but it would make a pretty good web comic. Instead, it has everything to do with a trip that Marty went on last week because of a letter he wrote. It's a pretty cool story, bruh.

Hello ACCtion Heroes! Want to read Marty’s letter or see pictures from the White House Holiday Tour? You are in for a treat!

This is the full text of the letter originally sent on 11/9/16 at 6 or 7am:

Mr President–

I donated to you when you announced your candidacy at the Lincoln Memorial with Dick Durbin. Over the past eight years, you have led this country with grace, dignity, intelligence, humor, and passion. I have always supported you–even when I did not agree–and I will continue to fight for your legacy, long after you have left office

I am sorry I let you down.

I know I could only vote once, and that I could not call every undecided voter, or fund every down ballot Democrat. Where I, and every other college educated white male who voted for you in ’08 and ’12 failed you, is in our inability or unwillingness to address the structural racism that has given birth to President-Elect Trump.

I have not spoken up –to family, friends, and neighbors– about racism.

I have not fought hard enough for my fellow Americans.

I have not called out, or called in, other white people enough.

In order for the country to heal, well meaning whites like me need to, “take the gun away” from white supremacists. Not only did we literally give supremacists the gun (and the bomb), we also gutted the safety net that you tried to repair.

I am sorry. We let you down.

When you leave office, and return to civilian life, I will join you in whatever task you undertake. I will do whatever it takes to keep your legacy intact.

With love and respect,

Martin Gleason

And here are a small sample of the pictures from the tour:
