Dear Editor:

I am writing this letter in regard to the Saturday, July 17 edition of your paper. I am a TIMES NEWS reader and look forward to receiving the paper every day. Saturday's paper included "Do you read the comics in the newspaper?," and I couldn't believe that the five people interviewed didn't have a nice remark concerning the comics!

I have been reading the comics ever since the newspaper started printing them. What is more fun that to read comics? I especially like Blondie and Dagwood. And we can't forget (their dog) Daisy. Without Daisy, it wouldn't be so amusing.

I just read a few weeks ago that laughter is very good for your health. I wonder if some people are aware of this? I myself love to laugh and joke.

If the comics were not in the evening paper, I wouldn't enjoy reading the newspaper so much.

Sincerely,

Violet Schaeffer Frey
