During the Snowstorm

Jimmy Tardy joined the table at the Bipartisan cafe on Southeast Stark Street in the late afternoon, before the start of the meeting at 6:30. We both found the page-one New York Times article a revealing sign that, if true, means that President Yanukovich of the Ukraine has no longer any substantial group supporting him and will have to go.

On a number of other issues, however, we had to agree to disagree.

At about 5 pm Lindsay Caron Epstein came over to the table and introduced herself. She is founder of an activist communication network. I promised to put her in touch with Starlene Rankin.

For the meeting itself, Daniel Wilson, Mark Seibold (by telephone) and Your Intrepid Reporter conferred, with the once-a-decade snowfall intruding into every conversational turn; and then the management of the Bipartisan announced that they were closing early. So we left.

      Every week, my dear carping younger relative, the Chapter assembles; every week it transacts business important to those who attend; that makes it a functional political group.
