    Hello, everyone ... good discussion today. Here is the link to the Charlie Rose interview (from July 25) with David Remnick, primarily about Remnick's profile of Bruce Springsteen that ran in The New Yorker. http://www.charlierose.com/view/interview/12471

    Hi all -- Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow, although we'll miss Judy and Jeanette. Three other suggestions for tomorrow in addition to Bruce -- The TED Talk Phenomenon (July 9/16), Using Linguistics to Solve Crimes (July 23), After America (July 9/16) ... Dan

      I read the first two and don't remember the third, so that would make me happy. I recently read the book "Quiet", by Susan Cain, who has become an advocate for introverts (with all the irony implied), and she struggled mightily with her TED talk. Whether or not you've read the article, I strongly suggest watching her TED talk.

    Hi. I'm never sure whether I can attend something until much closer to the time. What should I do?

      Hi, Alistaire- That's happened to me a few times, and I've RSVP'd yes with a comment that I could end up backing out. Hope you can make it!

    Hi, everyone! I've had to miss the past few meetups, but I'm looking forward to Saturday's discussion. I assume that David Remnick's profile on Bruce Springsteen ("We Are Alive" from the July 30 issue) is on the agenda. What other articles will we be discussing? I've passed on all my July issues, except for the July 30 issue, to other folks. So, if we are discussing something from the earlier July issues, I will need to print it out from the archive before heading out to the meetup. Would it be possible to decide on what we will be discussing by the end of the day on Friday? Thanks.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
