hey everybody-
there's been some interest about the event saturday morning. It's really important that we get as many people there as possible. Bring your little sister, your grandma, turner's mom, etc. etc. If you need further inducement, you'll get a chance to see me stumble my way through public speaking. yay! everybody come.
