i received another batch of letters from eli kramer*s sixth graders in the bronx, and found them so hilarious that i had to share some quotes. enjoy!!

dear jessica,
i loved your letter. oh god, i couldn*t believe the letter you wrote back, it was awesome. my class, we*re having a contest. whoever writes the most persuasive letter, they get to choose one of the money you sent [i*d sent a couple malagasy bills for them to see]. i think i*m going to win.

dear jessica,
i know how you feel different when people call you vizilala [i think he meant *vazaha*]. people used to call me porkchop. some people are still calling me porkchop.

[i told the kids that i earn about $200 a month]
dear jessica,
i have some questions for you:
1. do you work for all that money?

dear jessica,
we have 3 new students in my class. their names are anthony, gary, and jared. some of them are nice.

dear jessica,
i would like to know if you can send me a little bit of money for a souvenir. i sent you a quarter to pay you back [the quarter was taped to the back of the page]. i hope it helps when you come back to the US.

dear jessica,
i think it*s sad how people make fun of your skin color . . . . i know it*s hard for you to fit in but everyone goes through that awkward stage . . . . things may hurt from what you see but just stay strong and be brave like me and god.

dear jessica,
thank you for writing to us as a response to our questions. i am surprised you can write a 5 1/2 page letter. i guess you are used to it because i heard in college people have to write 12 page essays.

one girl signed her letter, *sincelery*. another signed hers, *have a very nice vacation*.
