    the members of the Board.   He's not the only Governor to take advantage of the law in the past few decades.  They obey the letter, but not the spirit of the law.  

    This speaks to a larger problem.  No one writes a letter these days.   I don't know what historians will use, in the future, to get a sense as to who we are, as individuals.   A hard drive is a poor archive if it gets sold, thrown away or overwritten.  

    When's the last time you wrote a letter.   I do it all of the time, because I like the way writing a letter makes me collect my thoughts, and set only the good ones down for posterity.  You can't hand draw a cartoon, or picture in the margin of an e-mail, or enclose a few flower petals, to send someone a bit of home, or a memory.  Very sad.
