As best I can tell, most people seem to have a good time regardless of who the know it all is. The Duck is going to be pretty dark and cold when I am talking so why not come down to toss tomatoes at me. I am a pretty good size target.
Don,

captivated me more than I thought it would during your last presentation at CRTU. I could see myself in many of the people you spoke about...jumping from rock to rock and trying crazy patterns...It is excellent information and things that we should cherish and pass along.
