Will Always be a Mystery

Did I really recieve the following letter, or was it all a fake:

"Dear Mr. Felsenfeld,

My great-grandson has introduced me to the inter net, and we found an
article that you wrote that discussed my compositions. I am trying to
address each article written about me in turn, and now I have come to yours.

You wrote that I composed music that "tickled my ears," and I assure you
that nothing could be further from the truth. My damn ears stopped working
in 1943, and I've had to rely on the sounds my farts make resonating inside
my body for inspiration ever since.

Yours in music,

Elliott Carter
Composer"

Now come on, who would really write this?

What a completely bizarre thing to have posted on Carter's 97th birthday! The Carter imposter obviously hasn't heard the amazing new Bridge CD of recent concertos conducted by Olli Knussen. IMHO, it's perhaps a "top 10" of 2005 if I believed in such limitations as "top 10s"...
