Oh horrors. I had been hoping to avoid this one.

Space Camp. That is pretty cool.

I can't believe I've been to New York more often than you. On second thought, seeing how much a day trip to New York cost us last month, maybe I can believe it.

I'll try to psyche myself into doing this one...

Take your time, Janet.

I've been a lot of places in the U.S. I've only left the country once. I need to go to New York again, and really experience it this time.

Space camp sounds like fun - did you get to do the weightlessness thing? (I know that I know someone who went but can't recall just who it was.)

Are you tired of being asked if you are a basketball player? My ex would occasionally ask "Are you a midget?" in response. The writer Robert Sherwood (6-6 IIRC) was so terrified by the midgets working near his office in NYC that he begged Robert Benchley and Dorothy Parker to accompany him whenever he went outdoors. One of them thought they looked like a living pipe organ as they walked down the street.

Yeah, it was interesting. I couldn't take the multi-axis chair for long, though.

Baltimore City Councilman Melvin Stukes. You might have heard of him.


You have no idea, my friend.
