Dear Beloved Customers,

My name is Dorothy Wainwright, and as you know, I am the owner of Hot Dottie’s Bakery and devoted wife to Henry Wainwright. My grandchildren have brought it to my attention that I’ve made a complete and utter flub which I’d like to address.

If you thought it might rain, would you leave the house without an umbrella? Of course not! So given that there have been more U.S. mass shootings than days this year, why be caught unprepared?
