Some Quality Time With Others in Our Human Family

September 17, 1997

The focus of the news is primarily on events of a negative nature: disaster, death, destruction and despair feeds the media beast. And yet most of our society functions fairly well--sometimes by legislation, most often by agreement.

This is not news and rarely reported, so it is of particular pleasure that The Times has been running a series on the travels of the Sipchen family across America, an odyssey of agreement among the adults and children of the Sipchen clan.

With humor, realism, respect and a dash of discomfort, Bob Sipchen--an excellent writer who never lets the effort show--shares the very human experiences of RVing the roads along with his wife and children. No disasters, just dimensional non-celebrity, everyday events that are always interesting and life affirming. Thank you for running this series.

A hearty thank you for the series following the Sipchen family around our country. To share in their experiences, reactions to new situations and the variety of their adventures has been a real joy.

I get pretty discouraged with life in these United States sometimes, but Bob Sipchen and his family are discovering that perhaps things aren't as bad as I was afraid they were.

It's a first-class piece of writing, as well.
