Just a short observation: I went to a Sierra Club/League of Conservation Voters' meeting with candidates for political office. Those two organizations kindly offerred other groups, like CGF, a chance to set up tables with information.
I manned a table, but the politicians were sitting, not circulating. "No use just sitting here," I thought, grabbed a bunch of CGF newsletters, and started introducting myself to candidates and giving them newsletters.
That's when the observation hit me: a meeting full of politicians, and the only person working the room is me. How often does something like that happen?
