Dear Ken,

First, let me thank you again for your continued support of Scenic Missouri and Scenic Texas through your family foundation. We are very grateful that you have embraced our efforts to save "America the Beautiful."

Second, I wanted to make sure you were aware of what I think may be a great public relations opportunity for Enron. I think you may have already heard from Kathy Whitmire about it. While at a Scenic America board meeting at Harlan Crow's Camp Topridge (you may have been there), I learned about Scenic America's upcoming program on PBS. This will consist of a series of six airings of a 30 minute documentary on Scenic America, its mission and the issues with which it is involved. Kathy Whitmire was at the meeting as was Carroll Shaddock, founder and chairman of Scenic Texas. A substantial advertising discount is being made available to the corporation that sponsors this documentary. This might be a perfect match for Enron, especially in light of your demonstrated commitment to the missions of Scenic America and its affiliates.

At any rate, I hope you will give this your consideration. Thanks so much for your ongoing help and support.
