This Week in Letters

Dear village people M, C, and A,

These are exciting times. In these days of ever-increasing inefficiency, we have determined that one person can now effectively and accurately do the job of many. Because of this, we are able to offer increased cost savings to our customers and truly move our business operations into the 21st century. Although your services with us are no longer needed, we wish you luck in your future endeavors. Our parting is not a reflection on your individual talents. Think of it this way; we have not let you go; we have freed you to pursue other opportunities  For instance, we understand there may be seasonal openings at the Children's Television Workshop for your corresponding letter and would be happy to serve as a reference.

Thank you, and Good luck,
