Take care now. There are all kinds in the audience. I won't take myself
too seriously and realize that Anne is trying to be funny. I don't go out
of my way to take pokes at other folks or their occupations and request
that personal opinions of such be kept under wraps when taking the stage.
Sound too sensitive? People like to beat on the military dog until they
need it (though they can't imagine they ever would).

I would also like to second Hank's 'Bravo Zulu' of the Lep Soc meeting for
those still reading. It was good to be able to associate names with faces,
and would recommend next year's meeting in North Carolina to everyone. The
presentations were of high quality, and as usual, the tales were tall. Evi
did indeed do a great job, as did the other planners and behind the scenes
