... and it seems as if i just got back!
Ah, well, duty calls. Free Speech Coalition is having its annual strategy session over the next four days, as as Board secretary (which occasionally translates to "bored secretary"), I have to record a summary of what happens. But it gave me an excuse to pick up a Stenograph machine again, which I hadn't touched in (ohgod!) 16 years now ... and whaddya know? The fingers still remember the keys! (Just nowhere near as quickly as they used to ...)
Anyway, I apologize for not posting more here recently, 'cause it's not as if I don't have enough stuff to write about ... I just don't have the time! But I'm working on it.
