I would like to say a few words about Jack Elliott.   I lobbied  Cathy 
Craig and other members of the Board of the IBS to bring Jack over for 
one of our Annual Board of Directors meetings a few years a back  in 
Lake Charles, LA.  I thought back then that he was a special fellow and 
thought that he would be an asset to our meeting and to the organization. 

One evening we went out for Cajun food and Jack ordered a local beer and 
I ordered a Guinness,  it was one of the those crowded places with loud 
music and  spicy food.  He enjoyed the local color and atmosphere and I 
was glad that Jack had the opportunity to see a slice of America and I 
was able to share it with him.
