Charles Schulzの50年前の手紙。

スヌーピーの作者の、当時の5年生が書いた「良い市民とは?」という手紙への返答が50年ぶりに日の目を見る。

ファンからの手紙に答えるのは稀だったそうだけれど、この返答は本当に感心する。

"Dear Joel," the letter reads. "I think it is more difficult these days to define what makes a good citizen then it has ever been before. Certainly all any of us can do is follow our own conscience and retain faith in our democracy. Sometimes it is the very people who cry out the loudest in favor of getting back to what they call ‘American Virtues’ who lack this faith in our country. I believe that our greatest strength lies always in the protection of our smallest minorities. Sincerely yours, Charles M. Schulz."

 今現在に完璧に当てはまる返答。何という先見の明。
