Lo and behold! Just as I was sinking into despair, lamenting that the Great 21st Century Literacy Debate will never reach resolution, I stumbled across this letter from camp written by a wacky kid named Sherman. Brilliant! It neatly answers all those thorny semantic questions, addresses all the unresolved issues, and wraps up the whole package with a musical bow. It’s a little blurry, but the violin part truly rocks. Time to put this debate to bed, people. You can thank me in the morning.
