    I had no idea Chuck Brodsky was in town Saturday night.  Thanks, Hal!  Checking with my wife/social secretary to make sure I don’t double-book us.

      I might see you there, Steve. I must also check with my better half first. When I’ve failed to do so in the past, things got a little chilly.
