Kid Mute about Milk

BREAKING NEWS from the 65th Crayon:

On a journalistic hunch, our colorful reporter sent field correspondent, Dawn S. Cumming, to dig up a quote from the precocious child featured this week in Letting me be's . . . front page exposé, NFTV: The Milk Story.

Field correspondent, Dawn, a sunrise worker with friends in high places, was able to contact the now 20-year-old college junior and obtained this quote shot off between classes he is attending at an undisclosed university in Washington, D.C.

"I can neither confirm nor deny the milk story," he said.

"Obviously, he’s taken to the culture of the Capital City," commented the crayon who has seen many things.

“He seemed sincere as sunlight,” was Dawn’s take on things. “This wasn’t the universal spin of the beltway. His words had the calm and brilliance of a nebula.”

“I like milk,” a small child said as this report went to press.

“We’re staying on top of this gene pool thing,” said The 65th Crayon pointedly. “We think this guy could know more than he's telling. There could be something to this genetics thing.”

Hi Tanda,
Yes indeedy, we sure were, but somehow we all lived through it. though I suspect there might have been moments of fantasy that would have had the story end otherwise.

He's now in college earning a degree.
