I agree, Dave. Richard is correct that what Corey, Shai and I posted were political in nature, and probably should have not been sent to the list. But, your comment was strictly informational and relevant.

How is what I sent irrelevant to the discussion about the potential cancellation of the ARSC conference? The US President just effectively closed the border. That’s relevant regardless of who the president is. Plus, I sent my message before I even saw Richard’s message.
