A letter to Nate Silver from an 11-year-old fan  NOV 12 2012

For the New Yorker, Paul Rudnick imagines a love letter written to Nate Silver by an 11-year-old girl.

I know that you're openly gay but that's fine because we can just hang out and you can say things like "I think that Harry from One Direction is 73% cuter than Louis although Louis is 21.8% funnier than Harry and my model predicts that they would both really like you, Emma, even though they both look 100% like Kristen Stewart, only less rugged." And I could tell you that if you were choosing a boyfriend for yourself Anderson Cooper would be 85.7% smarter and more sardonic than Ricky Martin, but Ricky would be 23% more mature because he has twins by a surrogate, although Anderson does have a more comprehensive wardrobe of election-year eyeglass frames.
