    A model tenement? I guess the connotation was a little different back then?

    It's like riding a bicycle. You'll never forget. :)

    Great talk Dan--and anecdotes. Nice to see you again. Wish the mayor's office could understand how much money they're throwing away by ripping out steam systems. You should challenge them to a contest comparing two buildings one with a restored steam system and the other their way.

    Thanks, David. They’ve made up their minds. Can’t fix stupid.

    So glad we made the trip down. Thanks Dan for an entertaining and informative talk...as always.

    Thrilled that my son Damon came along too. He's been working in the field for a year and absorbing it all like a sponge.

    Great running in to Alex Marx, and thanks Johnny Cataneo for the tour!

    Always a joy to see an old friend, and to make a new one. Thanks so much for making the trip.

    You haven't lost your chops Dan. It was very funny, well delivered and I learned a LOT of new things. Sorry I missed you Paul and Alex. Wouldn't have missed it. Mad Dog

    And anyone else I missed. I did quickly talk to the strapping young Mech. Engineer who drove up from VA, and was going right back last nite. He didn't wanna miss The Hall of Fame Holohan and his one of a kind style. I also saw a toddler quietly taking it all in. Mad Dog

    Thanks, Matt. I loved the toddler. I had to retire to make that happen. ;-)

    That library truly is a secular cathedral. It gives me the chills to speak there.

    Thanks, Sal. Wish you were there.

    By virtue of Erin posting that link, it's almost like I was there. A very enjoyable 71 minutes. After reading you and The Wall daily for 20 years, viewing it was somewhat akin to watching Jeopardy! I missed a few, but in most cases the learning you've imparted over two decades meant my being there would have probably annoyed other attendees, as I mumbled what you were about to say before you said it. :) Thanks for all both you and Erin do.

    They have recall elections there, right? if not, just have to slow him down for the next four years.
