  1. Hi Ms. Cavanaugh Simpson,

    I am writing after reading your highly entertaining and compelling article in the Wednesday, December 28, 2009 edition of the Baltimore Sun entitled, “Can we please say “Good riddance” to goody bags?” I read the whole thing out loud to my wife over dinner, and we are both on board with you. Thanks!

  2. We’re trying to reach you to let you know that you were nominated for this year’s Mobbies. Find information about it here: http://bsun.md/tAUqm4

    Thanks!
