To The Daily Sun,
Dear Dave Schwotzer:
How could you possibly know that one of my cousins had a long career in the field of rocket science? Your analogy was "right on the money". I am proud to say that one of my cousins was part of the team who designed the "LEM" Lunar Excursion Module which went on the first mission to the moon carrying Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins on July 20, 1969. Family history tells us that my cousin's signature is on that first LEM.
Thanks for a great comparison, as it brought back some good memories.
But alas, I must get back to the subject of this letter. I reiterate to you that a very close family member had a long career with a metropolitan police department. My point in giving you and others this detail is to assure you that I do know the in-depth difference between a prison and jail as a result of this person being part of our family for almost 50 years.
Our entire family respected the fact that he chose such a noble profession.
