This Week In Review
Hard to believe . . . one month of the new term has slipped by.  There were no guests today. We need new members and the way to sell guests is to bring them to a luncheon!!!  Spaget and meatballs with salad and calorie-free cheesecake (I examined mine carefully and could not find a single calorie).  Fines today were quite numerous, as well as being complex.  It was hard to know what you were voting for - as if it mattered.  Rich Carlson was fined because Miley is hirsutely sensitive - McKim was fined for his attire - Grimm was fined for absenteeism - the Sgt-at arms was fined for improper procedure, then again for dereliction. Attendance was on the sparse side. The Pot o Gold could have been won by Buckland or Jacobus.  Sorensen agreed to accept it.  The Handshake Prize went to Dick Mason.
Sertoman of the Day



Today’s Program was Dan O’Bryant, Republican candidate for U S Senate 2004.  He is seeking the seat currently held by Senator Ben Campbell.  Dan gave us a look at his background and experience, and outlined his thoughts on current government and his views on taxes and spending.  He spent time on the effect of terrorism and national and individual security.  Dan came to Colorado as a result of his military service, spent time as a JAG, was on the Air Force faculty and has been active in business. Married to Donna for 26 years, Dan has a daughter (recent graduate of the Air Force Academy) and two sons.  
He is also a Sertoman in the Gleneagle Club.  Thanks Dan for sharing your thoughts with us.
