Well hey, Chuck! It sure is nice to hear from ya! I see you on here occasionally but you're always gone again by the time I do. Thanks muchly for the congrats! Don't know why they picked me but it gave me the warm fuzzies regardless. lol! I hope things are going well for ya up there in the frigid northeast. We've had ice and a bit of a freeze here but at least we know it'll warm back up soon. Still, it's massive panic here for most folks! It's almost funny - if it wasn't so dumb! Anyhoo, don't be such a stranger around here, k?
I found out about this on the Robert Silverberg newsgroup I belong to. I met Frederik Pohl at a SF convention in Calgary many years ago. I count the 10 or so minutes I was able to spend chatting with him while he signed a copy of his autobiography among the highlights of my fannish experiences. He was a perfect gentleman.

Has a Tibial Plateau Fracture and will need a plate and screws. Surgery is on Tuesday. I'm asking all his friends to rally and send love n' support. Pass the word, okay?
You're welcome! perspective is everything - when we were children the "rules" seemed restrictive - now experience has proven their value - perhaps if they had been presented in such an entertaining manner, we would have accepted them with more enthusiasm then!
