Dear Mr. Pinkwater

I’m doing a report on you while reading the snarkout boys and the avocodo of death. I would to have some information of its not to much trouble. My report is is do 11-19-99.

Daniel replies:

And here it is, the 21st, and by now you've handed in your report without any help from me. However, if for some reason, it's not too late, here is a piece of information you can't get from anyone but me. My father found a rich vein of halvah in the Rocky Mountains, and operated a halvah mine until cheap imported halvah knocked the bottom out of the market--this is why I am independently wealthy and can afford to be a writer.
