Yes, I get that impression too. But perhaps I can publish my own
contributions to it? I do hope I get through what I'm trying to say about
that "classification" nonsense.

No, I'm really wondering whether I ought to go; my brother-in-law is going
very rapidly with Melanoma and isn't expected to last past Thanksgiving. We
may have to drive to Thanksgiving, or my wife may want to go down to NC
Thanksgiving week, and I think it's more important for me to stick around
here, if that be the case. My primary reason for wanting to go was the
B-Greek gathering that Edward Hobbs at one point said that he wanted to
host. I just don't know yet whether I'll go or not.
