JohnHenry'sHammer, Please listen to Frank in the post above.
If you really want to have some interaction with Pete in some meaningful way—beyond an autograph or photo-op—get behind one of Pete's projects in a big way. Get to know the everyday folks who make those projects go and devote your talents and time to the advancement of those projects.
You could energize the folk community in your area to produce an annual Sing Out! benefit concert for example. If it's big enough and has the potential to generate significant funds for Sing Out!, Pete might even agree to peform; at least he has done this in the past.
Even if you never get to meet Pete through these projects, you will have met and absorbed something of what he is about; far more valueable than a signature on a letter. And in any case, you'll make a great many new friends and your world (and mine) will be expanded.
