Hello from Washington D.C.

I am back in town after spending most of the week in San Antonio attending the
SLA Annual Conference and updating the weblog.

This email update is ONLY A SAMPLE of what's on the page.  With so much
material you'll see why checking in once, twice, or more times throughout the
week is a good idea.

Btw, thanks for sharing  this weekly reminder/update and/or simply the weblog

interest.
