The hard-working AG volunteers will be pleased. Time does slip by, and one MMC member, while sincere and of pure intent, has not quite gotten around to AG yet. The interns, enthusiastic Tigers all, gave him stern looks of reprimand, with Jo Oznot looking him in the eye and saying "How could you forget?". Fortunately, there is still time, and the properly humbled MMC member vowed to take swift action and is even increasing his pledge.
'66 Geographical Trivia Puzzler - The Puzzler is taking a day off to go fishing. True to Puzzler form, however, he commented on the way out the door that he'd like to call it "catching" rather than "fishing", but it never works out that way.
