Mañana Man's Mailbag —DeWese
Sincerely, your biggest fan,
*** Dear Latrelle,
What am I saying? You're not Latrelle Bloodworth. I know it's you, Marvelle Stump. I recognize your handwriting and grammar. Besides, who else would send me a handwritten letter on the Hattiesburg, MS, Ramada Inn stationery? Marvelle, you loser, I wouldn't loan you the money for a bus ticket to Tupelo. For the last time, stop writing me.
To the rest of you, particularly a bunch of salespeople in New York, stop whining about the economy, declining sales and your declining commissions and get out there and sell something!
