To the Editor:
How could you? I mean, really, how could you?
On Wednesday evening [July 20], my son, John Wagner, called me saying, “Hey, Mom, my picture was in the paper two weeks in a row, now it’s you.”
“Say, what? What, what?”
“It’s a picture of Pickett School in 1928.”
He then read the names of all in the front row ending with Janet Griese.
“Yup, that’s me on the far right end.”
So this morning I grabbed the paper only to find that some snarky newspaper man had snuffed my life out. I was gone. No Janet Griese on the right side of that picture. Only her name remained.
Really, how could you?
Let this be a lesson to you.

Editor’s note: While Janet assures the Commonwealth that her note was written in jest, we do regret that the image on file did, in fact, crop her out. Janet kindly provided us with another version of the image — without the crop.
