A REPORT FROM GRAND FORKS, NORTH DAKOTA

Dear Dave Barry,

I just thought that you would muse at the fact that the "Dave Barry Lift Station No. 16," which is a few blocks from where I live, is a Pokemon Go "gym," and as a result, has become a local gathering place for children of all ages. I figured you would appreciate that.

Best regards,

Robert

There is no greater honor.
