Dear Ann Landers,
I remember you once printed a response to those insensitive boobs who send newsletters announcing how well they are doing, the husband's great promotion, the kids' scholarships, the fabulous vacations, and so on.
I recently wrote a brief note to an acquaintance, telling her I had run into her sister while on a family outing. To my astonishment, I received as a reply her summer travel itinerary, her husband's business achievements, her children's musical recitals, and on and on. What makes people think all that extraneous information is of any interest? I'm happy to know everyone is well. The rest is bragging.
Please reprint that response to those annoying newsletters. It's time to see it again. -- Carol in Houston
