But before I do,  here's another piece of cheery inside-page news: For the first time in two decades, says a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, sexual activity among high school students has declined. Enough that more than half of these kids are now actually virgins! Maybe the Gross National Character, as you so nicely described it, actually is getting a bit less gross.

I'll look forward to seeing you face-to-face next week. Perhaps we can do a little soft shoe.  

Best regards,
Jodie
