    ED & GEOFF HAVE LEFT THE CHATTEROO

    The day is upon us. Maybe. In the words of the late Teddy Kennedy (uncle of Robert F. Junior, and real-life inspiration for Kendall Roy):
    "For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die."
    Thank you for keeping us cheerful.
