Sir,
I am humbled by all the support I received this past 15 months and these past couple of days. I received numerous care packages while deployed and each one was filled with lots of goodies and useful items as well as many letters of encouragement and well wishes. I have many friends here at the Los Angeles Times and am pleased to be able to enjoy their company again. I am glad to be home and will be even happier upon my Sons return and all the young men and women serving over seas.

John and Anthony — thank you! Welcome back. David today is art walk in downtown LA, for those that have not attended it is a festive event the 2nd Thursday of the month, they have free shuttles between all the
galleries, refreshments, live bands and more… I think LAT should have a presence there, some of our competitors do.
