After doing all that I could, I enjoyed a respite from crusading and then I went to the mailbox to find the above letter.
To say I was happy would be an understatement. Some people thought it was a feeble effort on the part of Mattel and that I should not be content. But I was. To questions like, "Well, you're not going to let them get off so easy are you?", my answer (after a seconds pause) was, "Yes, I have accomplished my goal".
I am finished with the Barbie Manifesto even if it is a much more condensed version than I had in mind when I started. Thank you to my friend; I am now finished with my Barbie Manifesto.
Now I can go make things.
