Dear Ken:  I thought I was careful to say we did not lose it.  But I was 
shocked when you first abstained.  At that point, with others also 
ambivalent or confused, it sounded as though we had lost.  But Michael 
called for a recount, you asked for an explanation, and it came out 
alright, but with little margin.  Let's see what the minutes say when they 
come out.

I was primarily saying it was a good thing that Richard was there.  He did 
a good job.  Perhaps I should not have expanded upon my original text, but 
there were good lessons to learn;-}

A snail was run over by a turtle.
When asked, "What happened?", he said,
"It happened so fast, I can't remember".
