    Thanks for keeping us all updated, Stevan. And hooray for the passing of 1010! Was it an audible vote or tally?

    Was it you or Heath who suggested at least one delegate had not read the Memorials prior to sitting in session? That has gnawed at me since hearing it this morning. It smacks of the good-ol-boy “Gen Con as vacation” attitudes I hoped were past. Save us, Lord, from the unprepared at something this important.
