  1. I noticed that in #7, you did not include librarians in the list of jobs that pay better than a career in children’s books. And as always, Calvin and Hobbes have a comment that speaks volumes. Hey – when you have a chance, please be sure to inform all three parents what it is you plan to do with your high-priced college diploma. Love ya ! !
