I don't want to blindside the conversation or anyone, but I saw that you
were posting about STC, so I dropped in to see if you were posting
another blurb about speakers and topics at STC/NYMetro, as I've noted on
the list from you, not recently, but in the past.

Not to get prickly, but you may have noticed that I have occasionally
said, on this list, words to the effect that I wish STC would fold up
their tents and steal silently into the night, for the good of the

At this point, if you're still reading, I just want to say that if some
(loosely) local STC group presented leading topics and speakers, such as
you've mentioned for your NYMetro group, even >I< would drive two hours
to attend, checkbook in hand when I reach for the meeting room door. The
last time I wrote STC a check must have been well over a decade ago.

I'd drive further than that if the group also stayed awake to monitor
and report on legislation and industry initiatives affecting us.
