This Sunday The Oakland Tribune ran a selection of kids' letters to Santa. Some clever editor or layout person made a point about things by placing the following two letters right on top of each other:
I'm so happy I am saying a hello to you. I'm also happy that you exist because that's how you can help us. This year our mom can't give us nothing because she lost her job and you're the only hope I have.
I would love some boots because the ones I have are ripped and I can't keep them together with glue any more. If you can I will be so grateful. And if not, I'll be happy just for saying a hello to you.
Sincerely, Ingrid (Oakland)
The very next letter:
I really like Harry Potter and Twilight. So could you get me lots of Twilight and HP stuff please? I believe in you!
From Madison (Pleasanton)
Occupy kids' letters to Santa!
Here's a blurry shot of the originals. The problem is my camera got all misty-eyed reading 'em.
