  19. 19. Case of the Wrong NameDear Organization,  My name is not Joseph Smith. This man has apparently confused his own email address with mine. In fact this email in general is very hurtful to me. I suffer from and lost a foot to diabetes. I therefore cannot participate in your "race" as I am hobbled. Perhaps I would be willing to participate if I could borrow Wilford Brimleys horse from his commercials. Is that something you could arrange? Please look into this. If I am able to ride a horse for the cure I may reconsider being involved. If you are unable to meet these conditions I would ask that you respectfully stop sending me emails that are meant for an inept computer user. Thank you kindly, JARED Smith Jared, I apologize for this mix up. I deleted the email address from Joseph Smith’s account, so the messages being sent to you in error should stop. Please let me know if you receive any more.  Thank You, Outreach & Administrative Coordinator Any word on my request for the horse?  No horses allowed on the race course…not this year. I’ll make a request to our Race director, though. :)"-Thank you, Outreach & Administrative Coordinator"
