Campaign manager of the Meo for Congress 2016 enterprise, and elected vice-president of the Eastside Democratic Club, Herschel Soles met for a short but important you might say caucus of the officers of the Cascadia chapter of the Pacific Green Party of Oregon.
After all, what has the Chapter got for officers? Well, there’s the President of the Chapter; but he never comes to meetings. Hell, he defended the idea, when we served on the so-called State Co-ordinating Committee of the Pacific Green Party of Oregon together some years back, he defended the idea of not meeting once a month — let alone (shudder) once a week, as is the practice in the Cascadia Chapter. He’s a nice guy, though — really. There remain three officers: the brand-new Treasurer Charlotte Miller, Herschel, and Your Intrepid Reporter.
So, given that situation, Meo and Soles invoked the little-known younger sister of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, namely the Schrödinger Reality Principle, to declare that two votes of the officers constituted a sufficient quorum for doing the executive business of the Chapter.
The Chit-Chat Cafe is the new venue for meetings of the Chapter.
We meet Thursdays at 6:30 pm. Today is Thursday. We are meeting tonight at the Chit-Chat Cafe at 6:30 pm.
Update: Your Intrepid Reporter got a poem out of it. The lines to this untitled poem are as follows:
Prishchepionek‘s not coming
the paperwork to
explain meeting with
Mikhail Vladimirovich Mstislavskii
was too much for our aging friend
Update 29 May 2016: Campaign manager Herschel Soles has quit. Treasurer Charlotte Miller has left word, through her contact with the Chapter Dave Westerlund, that, now that the venue is the Chit-Chat Cafe, neither of them will be attending any Chapter meetings ever again.
You do realize, my dear reader, that this will have utterly no effect whatsoever on my running for Congress this year.
