We had a wonderful time at the Journalism/MCOM/CMMA reunion on September 24. Lots of fun, beautiful weather and great music from Syd Sklar's band Metacoustic and Rick Lorenc & the Destroyers, featuring Alby Odum, Jeff Jaskowiak and Rick's neighbor, Dave. Plus, we dedicated the honorary plaques for Rick and for Terre Rosner.
