Wil Wheaton apologizes to a fan club member 21 years later

Back in 1988, 8-year-old Teresa Juniso sent off $12 to join Wil Wheaton's official fan club ... and waited ... and waited. Finally, 21 years later, the Star Trek: The Next Generation star fulfilled her order—and delivered a heartfelt apology as well.

When Wheaton heard last year how his now defunct fan club had disappointed Jusino, he dug up a complete membership kit to WilPower and sent it along with an amusing mea culpa, which read in part:

Dear 8 year-old Teresa,

I wanted to apologize to you for making you wait so long to get your official WilPower fanclub membership kit. You see, 15 year-old me is very busy with work and school, and the people who were responsible for getting your membership kit mailed back to you must have made a mistake.
