Changes to the other state pages are usually not announced; there's just too many of them and typically do not affect the general readership of this site.

- A reminder to all: I'm not a mindreader and I don't get out to all the dances (actually, I don't get out
to about 99% of them). It's up to the dance promoters to get their information to me if they want to
reach out to all the readers of this website. If I don't have that information, it's not going to show
up on this website. Remember: this is not my job; it's yours. Send your event's information to me and
send it early.
- One venue sent me a link to their Google+ page as well as to their Groupon page. Feel free to send
me your Google+ and Groupon URLs.
From the corner booth...
I recognize that I have a wide range of friends: dancers to non-dancers, introverts to extroverts, liberals to conservatives, Democrats to Republicans, Geeks to non-Geeks, very smart to the very stupid (including the idiot who thought my wedding reception was a good opportunity for a roast). This world consists of a wide range of opinions and ideas and personality types. This recent election (and the two preceding ones) created an unnecessary wall between the various factions, not to mention a great deal of ill will.
I think that the sign of a good friend is someone with whom you could have a heated argument and still be friends. Back in the old days you'd watch polar-opposite politicians tear at each other in public; yet, at the end of the day, they'll retire to the back of a bar, roll up their sleeves, and iron out a deal over a couple of drinks. Those guys knew what was important. I hope all of you will consider doing the same.
See you on the dance floor.
