Michael Paoli has replied in public to a email that was meant to be sent 
to Dick Verna but was not.
It should be clear that BALUG needs a person to schedule speakers!
I do not have the time or HEALTH to do the job!
Dick Verna does not have the time or energy to the the job!

So UNLESS someone is willing to do the job BALUG will NO LONGER HAVE 
scheduled SPEAKERS!

I do hope someone will do the Needed JOB! Of course several people could 
split the work to be done.

I will try to send a email to the regular balug-talk list about this later 
today or Tuesday.
