Your letter to the bugman:  Its hard to see in the picture, but its head is fuzzy and its antennae appear to be segmented.  I searched tirelessly on the internet to indentify this guy but couldnt figure out if its a cockroach, beetle, or wasp.
How you want your letter signed:  Thank you for your help, Ayla.

Dear Ayla,
The Lion Beetle,
Ulochaetes leoninus, looks much more like a bee than it resembles other members of the Long Horned Borer Beetle family Cerambycidae.
