Today, I spent the whole day in meetings of the General Assembly Task force in preparation for our General Assembly to be conducted here in August 2008. Just before our meetings began, I had the privilege to meet former Speaker of the United States House of Representative, the honorable Newt Gingrich. Mr. Gingrich was in town speaking at a convention totally unrelated to our business there.

We talked for a bit, and he sent a very personal note to my son, Shaun. I was happy for the opportunity.
