I'd like to go to Cancun for spring break. Please send money. Just kidding, of course. If you've been following "Mail Call/You Said It" in The Daily Mail and The Morning Herald recently, you know about the Cancun reference. It's been hilarious. It has been a theme that has kept me sane while I've waded through the mass of more somber calls we've received in recent weeks. Mail Call used to run only in The Daily Mail. Since we started running "You Said It" in The Morning Herald, it seems like we've been flooded with calls.

"We work with the woman who wrote the letter to the editor about the SPCA. The one who tried to find the owner of a beagle. We just wanted you to know the kind of person she really is. She is a very loving and caring person. She thinks about others and puts them before herself. Many of us never knew she was helping the shelter. She never bragged about the things she was doing for them. When we found out how she was helping the animals, all of us thought it was terrific. The SPCA has really shattered her spirit.
