Committee Reports


We have a new TIF. It is in fact up there.


We hassled a bunch of books last weekend. But there are many more to hassle.


Old Business

In the past, John Quincy Adams was a Founding Son.

In the past, Carthage burned.

In the past, there was a Civil War.

In the past, there was an Aroostook War.

In the past, there was a Revolutionary War.

In the past, ALC was Skinner during KKB's freshman year.

In the past, various people were Skinner.

In the past, various people were young.

In the past, I was less bitter.



New Business

In the present, it is Dominion Day. Should people perhaps play Dominion?

In the present, it is the beginning of a long weekend.

All weekends are long weekends for Michael.

No weekends are long weekends for KKB and DWR.

In the present, the pseudoSkinner is eight souls in debt.


Future Business

In the future, there will be more robots.

In the future, it will continue to be July.

In the future, Jim Butcher might write things that aren't fantasy.

In the future, on 8 July, the last space shuttle will launch for the last time.

In the future, we might get an Orion Drive.

And all motions FAIL due to lack of a second.

Miller Motion CHICKENS 6-0-7 plus Spehn.

Attempts to drive the Skinner from the room through singing fails because he is in Colorado and his hearing isn't that good.

And the pseudoSkinner is driven from the room through singing.

BING! Meeting adjourned, 68.4 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Lemur Rowlands, Onseck
