    Hey, congrats to your sister!



    Winner of a prestigious literary award... she's probably very liberal, right?

    Congrats to your sister. I just got back from my five-year reunion at Washington College. I couldn't get in to see the graduation this time because the weather moved it indoors and I didn't have a ticket.



    I hope Laura won't be affected by the Sophie Kerr curse!

    That's great . . . good for her!



    I bet you two don't talk much politics hunh?!



    Also, I bet she'll either head to NYC or to my alma mater in Iowa . . . .

    the writers workshop at the University of Iowa . . .



    unless, of course she goes to a truly good school like Harvard or Yale or Brown . . .hm . . .
