So, I lost a couple of skirmishes, but I'm still holding my position. That counts as a victory.
Speaking of the meetings, they were actually good and productive. I learned some important things and had a couple of important conversations. The business seemed to be moving important things through the pipeline. The mills of the BSA grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding fine. Still, I'll be glad when my term is up. I don't think my body or my wallet can stand being a Somebody much longer.
