    Thanks to Agent19's post that reminded me of the meeting tomorrow evening.

    Looks like I'll be unable to attend the pre-meeting meetup at the secret location due to class, but I'll probably come straight to the meeting from campus if I can. Not that anyone gives a hoot about me showing, just saying.

    I'll probably be there. Can someone PM me the secret location of the pre-meeting meet up? I may decide to show up there sometime in the future.

    Super secret location? Sounds pretty important. Is that where they plot how they can monopolize the world's supply of mayo packets?

    I wish they would hold the meetings on a Friday or Saturday or Sunday. I won't be able to make it until May.

    Second meeting in a row I have to miss, but it's critical to attend an informational meeting for parents of students with intellectual disabilities. All funding for subsidized employment for those individuals has been cut, and as you might imagine this is an issue of critical importance to me.

    Fairfax County didn't ask me before scheduling the meeting for the 22nd.

    I'll be at the meeting, probably not the pregame warmup.

    Welcome!!!!

    (sly grin) Have you been briefed yet on the rule that the new guy buys a drink for everybody at one of the tables?

    Honest truth. Surprised no one's mentioned it yet. Really.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    There is no such rule. Don't be too willing to treat with this crowd. They're good folks. You could leave your wallet laying around at a VCDL meeting, but offeringto buydrinks is a whole different story!! (Non-alcoholic drinks is what I am talking about, of course.)

    Usually around 9:30pm the VCDL meeting will break up and after restacking chairs and so forth agood number of people will head to the Fuddruckers restaurant atColumbia Pike and Backlick Rd inAnnandale. Its literally the next to last block at the far western end of ColumbiaPike.

    Already tol' him. See the post just above. No PM needed. The after-meeting location is rather public knowledge.

    Sorry.

    As evidenced by the fact that it happened to ME.

    For some reason all my friends fall down suffocating with laughter whenever I mention that humility is one of my strongest traits.

    I can't make the pre-meeting, but I will see everyone at the government center and at Fuddruckers after the meeting.

    I was entertaining the idea of driving up to NOVA for the meeting, but If I do I want to go to a nice, clean pistol range. Does anyone have any suggestions?
