To the Editor: This should actually read, “Dear Robin Hensel.” Thank you very much for causing all the “Sign” trouble in Little Falls.

News that the Minneapolis Schools will allow students to graduate with one less gym class brought mixed emotions. It seems odd that in the face of rising childhood obesity rates that physical fitness would take the hit.
