An inspiring letter

Ninety-nine-year-old Mavis Line writes a pithy, well-worded letter (“Change is needed,” Oct. 8), and has a sharper mind than many of us younger folks!

I loved her terse, yet vivid, description of arriving in wintertime Alaska in “open-toed shoes,” and using that as a metaphor for today’s national woes.

Dear Mrs. Line: Please, please, write your autobiography for your family. It will be a delight to read. Perhaps it might be printed up in the Spokesman, as well!
