Aw, shucks, we know that, Corun, and we appreciate the folks who do the
work....I've held a few local offices myself so I know how that goes...

I'm sure Landi was just expressing that sentiment we all feel when we have
to fill out the paperwork/take out the trash/clean up after the
event......natural, understandable, and universal, I think!  I have to
admit sometimes the paperwork seems a little much, but we still keep coming
back to play!  :)  Just the way the modern world works, I suspect....  ;)
