Dear Minda and IRP,
I don't say very much on this list but I have followed the discussions and
the Coalition's activities for several years now.
Minda has beaten me to it with her nomination as I was intending to
nominate her myself just as soon as the non-virtual world I inhabit gave me
a moment for virtual things.
So all that is left for me is to express really strong support for this
Best wishes
