just a process update, we're just wrapping up the PEDNAR call right  
now and it looks like only 2 constituencies got statements in on  
time.  so we all have a 2-week "dog ate the homework" extension.

Berry Cobb is pulling together a call among the BC members on the  
PEDNAR working group (Berry, Mike, Phil Corwin, me) to hammer on this  
and figure out a process to get something by you for review.  Palage  
is off to a great start with this post.
