JJ, I guess we'll manage to pick a new moderator, but I think we should acknowledge
your tireless volunteer work for BayPIGgies, from book reviews to standy talk-giver
and logistics coordinator back in the IronPort days.
And all this with your killer commute to Concord, and your growing family.
You're a real star. People like you are very rare.

So thanks again,
