    I nominate the Triumvirate Council for Bilge Rat Of This Here Month.

    Everybody knows that BROTHM is a lonely, thankless job, so I propose these three gentlemen tag team it for November:

    Vince Brennan, Lee G, and Lew Barrett.

    They are all within elbow-bending distance, for one thing, and are discerning gentlemen of honor, class and distinction, ready, steady and experienced.

    Anyone but jung. And.... although undistinguished, he's already been 'victimized'.

    How's that for 3rd person?
    There's a lot of things they didn't tell me when I signed on with this outfit....

    I don't think I'd be up for it in November. Not sure I will be able to hold my tongue well enough before the new age arrives in January.

    I'm still not certain what's expected of me, but whatever it may be, I promise im a bad fit. I am taking a government contract next week that will last months and consume most of my time hopefully until spring. Im afraid my name up there is quite useless.
