EACH ONE OF THEM.

ACTUAL E-MAIL I RECEIVED FROM

MATT DAMON.

HIS STUNTS THE NEXT "BOURNE"

PICTURE.

MAN UP, DAMON.

>> HI, STEPHEN, I'M WRITING TO

HELP WATER.ORG.

PEOPLE WHO FOLLOW YOUR TREATS,

I'M SURE YOU'RE INUNDATED LIKE

THIS.

THOROUGHLY WORTHWHILE CAUSE.

THE ANSWER, IS OF COURSE, YOU GO

TO HELL, MATT DAMON.

LY NOT EXPLOIT MY 1.9 TWITTER

FOLLOWER TO PLUG WATER.ORG WHICH

I'LL TALK ABOUT IT ON MY SHOW

BECAUSE IT ALLOWS ME TO POINT

OUT THAT MATT DAMON IS BEGGING

RECENTLY RECEIVED AN ACTUAL

E-MAIL FROM TWITTER INFORMING ME
