Oh, jeez. I groaned when I turned to the Nov. 9 Opinion & Letters page, my mind drifting past Cal Matters, chuckling at the Signe Wilkinson cartoon, and quickly landing on the Letter to the Editor.

Yes, one Letter to the Editor. What the hell?

I expected this was another long-winded preaching about one political hot topic or another. The writer would either be echoing my thoughts or would be echoing the thinking of all the idiots with whom I disagree.

How quickly I realized I was mistaken.

Violet Hover of Yountville, has a way with words. I sat with the paper in my lap, cup of coffee resting at the ready, and I read every single word. No, I savored Violet's letter. Thank you, Dear Editor, and you, Violet Hover, for a bright start to my morning.
