FOR THE RECORD

TROOPS LOVE THOSE LETTERS FROM SCHOOLS

“I was in a tent with two guys in their early 20s who were poring over a stack of letters and class photos and separating them into piles. I was a little taken aback that these young guys, in the middle of a war zone, would be so moved by support from Grade 4 classes until I realized the deciding factor for the favourites pile was which teacher was hotter.” —Rick Mercer on a Christmas visit with the troops in Afghanistan
