Behold, the power of social media - where celebrities CAN and DO respond to their fans sometimes.

We got a tweet to our Pat and AJ account from @itstravis about a letter from legendary comedian Steve Martin to a fan named Jerry from Flint. A lot of people didn't believe it was real...until Mr. Martin himself confirmed it. It's a "fill in the blank" form response that was sent out to his fans in the days before electronic communication.

Our favorite part is the final line: "I'll always cherish that afternoon we spent together in Rio, walking along the beach, looking at rocks."

Next task - find out who "Jerry" is.
