Sir / Your rah-rah piece on the North Star State [Aug. 13] evokes memories and nostalgiaprincipally for those marvelous lakes. Surely you stirred a million of us expatriate Gophers to sing one chorus of Hail! Minnesota. But there was one grievous error about the Minnesota mosquitoes: it is the dive bombers that are half the size of the native anopheles, not vice versa!

Sir / People think I am crazy when I refer to my home state as "God's country." Thanks for letting everyone know that...
