When I told a friend that I was joining Akbar Lodge in Chicago,
he told me he had visions of white-haired ladies sitting on
folding chairs.  I then told him about the last meeting I had
attended.  I was the only woman there and half the males were
African-American, of various ages.  At one point, someone pulled
out a videotape, which we all watched on a television set.

I have recently joined a study group, as the Lodge sometimes
proved too advanced for me.  The ages here range from twenties to
forties.  No tea is allowed.

I agree that things have perked up.  Seems the Annual Meeting and
Summer School has been livelier and more interesting since Algeo
took over.
