Dear Judy,

Many things have changed, especially in the sports world, since you left. The Phillies, who had already printed World Series tickets, lost eight in a row and dropped to third place. And, believe it or not, the Rams clobbered the Forty-Niners yesterday.

We have shown your letter to many of our friends, all of whom have gotten a big laugh out of it, due to your categorizing the French as cranks and shovers. Maybe you should be a writer after all.

Lots of love and kisses,
