Readers thank an old friend for birthday wishes, rant about an airline employee sleeping on the job.

RAVE For Ginny, a lifelong friend of my late mother, who calls me every year on my birthday to wish me well, a generous gesture and a joy for me: honoring my late mother and their long friendship. It’s a bit like my mother being brought into the present to wish me well, which is especially sweet since my siblings don’t remember.

RANT To any airline employee sleeping instead of working. They should be fired at once!
