Ugh. I hope they don't pull a stunt like they did last year, where they basically went six months without a meeting. Daddy would like to see his Jericho 941F someday.

Many of us believe that 96-1 would not be a useful legal defense if the AG or MSP decided to ignore it. The claims it makes are nowhere in existing law.
