To The Editor:

A note to the Class of 2013:

The Californians say they have the world’s best-looking kids. Their theory is all these beautiful people go there to become movie stars. They meet and mate, thus these kids.

They just haven’t seen our Class of 2013 yet. You kids shoot that theory all to pieces, don’t you? Thank your parents for staying here for us. Armed with your looks, diplomas and upbringing, you’re ready for the world. Thank your dedicated teachers also.

Sometimes things can get out of hand at college with sad results. Make friends there. Take care of each other. And like your parents, when you have to use tough love on them, ask for the same for you.

Tell all your friends they’re your best friend. Be good and have a nice life. Call home a lot, and keep making us all proud.

P.S. Always remember that tough love equals real love.
