  1. Craig,

    Good luck with this reading.

    Don Share posted at the Harriet blog a few days back your May 28 comment re: the "white" Mayday forum I organized. I only saw the comment today.

    Thought I'd mention here, since they are pretty far below, that I've posted a couple replies on the matter (and copied them to Harriet).


  2. Good to see people representing the island of Guam on the mainland. Keep it up and good luck with your reading.
