No, unfortunately, I couldn't make it.  I'm only a state candidate, and I'm
too poor to attend functions that aren't necessary.  (May I ask who told you
they thought I was there?)

I've had great success convincing local LP folks that Approval is better than
IRV, but I can't seem to convince them that it's an important issue.  At the
monthly business meeting they had the month before I joined, they voted to
support IRV, but nothing's been done about it, and it's not considered enough
of an issue to rethink that position.  I've noticed that Libertarians
generally agree on an amazing number of issues, but almost all of us have very
different priorities.

"Trashing"?  Whoa.  What'd he say?  That we're too principled to get anything

Thanks for your advocacy of alternative election methods at the convention,
Doug.  I wish I could have been there!  (Could you send me Bill Redpath's
e-mail address?)
