"like the baubles for which the Indians traded Manhattan" Now that got a literal "laugh out loud" from me! This is an exciting project, and I can't wait to see it launched...
I'm going to use my air quotes a different way. That "entrepreneur" is definitely missing out on what real investors can bring to the table.
As you know, I live a stone's throw on the Placer County side of the line. However, I intend to visit Nevada County several times in the coming weeks, and if it would help, I'd be glad to give credit to this inspiring new logo. PS: I've seen WAY worse.
George - my second Andy Kessler book to recommend in a row, but if you haven't read his entire book on the subject, it's amazing (I'm 70% through with it). RL - I'm most definitely right of center (although probably not as right of center as some think, depending on the issue). Having read your comments over the course of a long time (and known you since about 2005), I think it's abundantly clear that you are an independent centrist. We have to have coffee some time again - I think it would be fun.
George, you should read "Grumby" by Andy Kessler - it's a novel, and I doubt you'd agree with the story's conclusion, but it's still a rollicking good read. :)

Russ, I figured you would love the world of Kindle. I've been a fan for about two years now and just got my wife one. I've come to the point that I only buy very specific books in hardcover, like presidential biographies, which I love to collect. I love having my library everywhere I go, and with Kindle's commitment to cross-platform, I think we've both made the right bet on the e-reading future. One thing you should watch for: make sure you visit the Kindle Bestseller List on every week or two, and check out the top 100 free books available. You have to dig through some trashy romance novels, but you'll also find a bunch of copyright-free classics like The Iliad and The Odyssey, as less as a few gems that traditionally go for $8-$15 (as a loss-leader to introduce you to an author).

Steve, you're correct - Keoni and Tim have done an amazing job getting local subcontractors involved and up-to-speed on Field Act and DSA regulations. I am incredibly thrilled that we were able to get Keoni and Tim on the project as well. While our staff took steps to ensure that local companies could compete, they won the project fair and square in a competitive manner, and that's something we can all be proud of. Aaron
Given the hundreds of thousands of dollars (or perhaps millions, for all I know) that the Chapman family has and continues to invest in the cause of adoption...frankly, I think it would be more than fair to say that these dollars and much, much more are going to SH. As a recipient of a Shaohannah's Hope grant to bring my son home from South Korea, I have to say to any negative commenters: SHAME ON YOU. This family contains the most generous people you will ever meet. Go find someone else to tear down and criticize, for crying out loud.
