Huh? Who Ted wrote about Transatlantic Council???? Not me. Somewhere along
the line after I wrote about merger-itis and how silly it would be for
Alaska to be all one Council, given its size, MAJ must have replied
pointing out how big Transatlantic was and telling us how it could be made
to work to have Alaska as one Council. I think you confused a reply by MAJ
to me, with a letter from me.
I agree with you. Not only is Alaska a State, but it has the distinction of
being the birthplace of my wife and all three of our children. My original
message is that three Councils are fine, and one Council would be silly. So
calm down, RW!
