Im another of those in the crowd to watch you receive your well deserved Burnett Anderson Memorial Award for the ANA. I was a back bencher way back at table number 27. There were a lot of folks standing and applauding your work. Thanks for doing what you do.
It was kind of a blur for me, trying to smile for the cameras and manage not to drop the plaque or medal or trip over my own tongue. The room was so large it was difficult to take it all in. Thanks again to everyone for your good wishes. Neil Shafer, Gene Hessler and several others have written to me since the ANA.
Here's another photo from the banquet, provided by John Wilson. That's John Eshbach of the Lancaster area with my wife Dee and I, and the famous $10 glass of wine. -Editor
Walt Ostromecki is a current ANA Governor re-elected last year. Im sure he would be very sad to hear that he had been again taken off the board.
Whoops! Sorry, Walt - don't pack your bags again. I do try to identify most of the people named in The E-Sylum since not everyone reading will know. The problem is my fact-checker (me) is a total screw-up. Now that my feet are back on planet Earth, on with tonight's issue! -Editor
