Ten Letters Each night, President Obama opens a purple folder filled with ten letters chosen by his staff among the thousands received each day at the White House. Often, he responds with a handwritten note of his own. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll visit with Washington Post writer Eli Saslow, author of "Ten Letters: The Stories Americans Tell Their President." And we'll hear from a local letter writer whose note helped guide the president's health care policy. Tomorrow at 9.
