Thanks for your recent articles reflecting on the accomplishments of the VMA [A torch that begs to be passed, Ken Trainor, Viewpoints, Aug. 1]. I also enjoyed reading Doug Wyman's recent Viewpoints piece [An ode to the VMA, Aug. 8]. I would add the 1984 handgun ban to his list of VMA-era accomplishments. My mom would add Al Belanger to his list of people to thank!

As it happened I was sorting through a box of old letters with my mom very recently, and we came upon this 1973 note from Dwight Follett to my dad, John Philbin. I thought I'd pass it along as a reminder of "what went on."
