Most of the readers of this blog will have already received our annual family publication in the mail by now. We Rienstras, ever the non-conformists, don't do a "Christmas" letter. We send out our yearly news and greeting in Epiphany, because we're just too busy during Christmas. Bah humbug.
We also don't do content in the usual way. Actually, we hardly do content at all. But our friends are too polite to mention that they have a hard time discerning any real information about us from an elementary school homework sheet, a fictional book review list, an allegorical map, or any of the other wild ideas we've come up with. But hey, is information the point?
So this year we figured that our letter should reflect a bit of L.A. celebrity culture. Thus, we have produced a mini-tabloid, the SUN Valley News. If you don't have your own copy, you can see it here.
