In reference to your article on November 10 about the Veteran's Stand Down.

I would like to thank all the brothers and sisters at the Local 2209 and the Management at GM for allowing us the time off from our jobs, when manpower is short, to help out with this important event.

I am a total klutz. The other day I actually bought two left shoes. Some days I wonder how I made it through without fatally injuring myself. This is about the only thing I have in common with Bridget Jones, but for some reason I still find her identifiable. I've seen Bridget Jones's Diary dozens of times.
