Today's theme: NOT same as it ever was.
Recently, the last telegram was sent by Western Union.
My wife's a big Michelle Kwan fan, so was quite irritated when I said that the winner of 9 US championships, 5 world championships, and silver and bronze at the last two Winter Olympics ought not to have been on this year's Olympic team. Seems I was right, but don't tell my wife.

Finally: I've known Kevin's parents for years. Kevin's mother writes:
We are all proud of our children - and through the trials and tribulations of parenthood we all hope that sooner or later our children will find what they are really good at and really excel at it.

I hope you don't mind that, as his proud parent, I wanted to share this with you.
