No offense to anyone, but I can't imagine Alex had anything  in mind 
but bringing each of us a smile when he made that post.
Anything but a rant, in my humble opinion.
Quite a 175th birthday for SLC.  A best seller -- 100 years after  passing
on -- is not a bad effort, to say the least.  Bravos, Kudos, and  Accolades
to the folks at Berkeley.  Well done.  Btw, nice piece on NPR  today with 
and Michael adding lots of good info and color.  (Still online at 
_www.npr.org_ ( .)
Those who've been to Elmira will see it in their mind's eye, for sure  -- 
John Bird's cigars, which lie beyond the scope of radio,  unfortunately.  
Sure wish
I could have been there for the last gathering.
My copy of the Autobiography, a gift from my daughter, is about to  have 
the shrink 
wrap removed, as I look forward to diving in.
Hope that the Becky Thatcher House grant will make the cut for  December.

I voted 
every day, just as if it were a vitamin to be taken with breakfast.   :-)
