Letter to the editor: Columnist gave reader a good laugh

Who needs humorist Dave Barry when we have our own funnier Jessie Raymond? Every column she writes nails our life in these times.

Her last one, in which the bear cracks open her bird feeder “like a lobster, the better to get at the good bits inside” and the dog is diagnosed “with a combination of pancreatitis and regret” is screamingly funny.

Keep ’em coming, Jessie. We need you!
