Dear Mr. Hopkins

I second your opinion about the downfall of the world as we know it. I have also experienced the transition phase so I totally share your fear. But I feel blaming it on sitcoms like “Friends” is absolutely irrelevant and not just because I am a Friends fanatic. That’s sheer entertainment. How can we hold Friends accountable for the launch of Facebook and George W. Bush getting re-elected?

Also, Ross is a nerd but he isn’t the only intellectual one in the gang. Chandler may be funny but he is pure genius. Phoebe looks at life differently. She is the philosophical one. And so on… So, what I am trying to say is, we do need Rosses in the world but we cannot live in a world full of Rosses.

P.S. Ross couldn’t have got better friends.
