Sue Lesch, Mayor of Norwalk, was kind enough to answer these questions that have been troubling me for some time. Do you get a bunch of forwarded e-mail messages with attachments? Do you open them? Who is the biggest offender for sending them to you? Yes! I do get lots. I can get as many as 30 regular e-mails in a day to which I must respond. So, unfortunately, I cannot read all the forwarded attachments. I do always read Tera's because I know hers will make me laugh or lift my spirits. (Sorry, I won't ID the biggest offender.) Do you have a special ring tone for your cell phone? What is it?
