    Thought you guys might get a kick out of this... I was going through some of my grandfather's things and came across a letter to the editor he wrote in response to the following special feature:

    Awesome post DY.

    Two things I thought:
    1. Things haven't changed much in 25 years.
    2. I wonder if Douglas is still still driving.
