Dear People of Lagniappe-
I hope all is well and healthy for all of you.
I have been reading your paper almost every week since your inception.
My point is that I owe you so much more than I am able to give.
I do not want a subscription, nor do I (have a) computer or cell phone.
I love you and your ugly purple boxes, and I want you to keep on keepin’ on. Thanks for keeping me informed.
P.S. When online abbreviations started, I thought it (LOL) meant “Lots of Love.”
Editor’s Note: We don’t usually run letters that are not signed with a full name, and we do not think the author intended for this to be published anyway, but this letter arrived along with a donation and on a day when we really needed to hear these words. Thanks, and LOL to you, VTS! Your support means so much and we are doing everything we can to “keep on keepin’ on.”
