. All topics are welcome other than partisan politics. None of that, please. For frequent callers, please call in with something new and different. Remember, Open Lines works best with phone call, not just email and chat. I have some announcements I will be making up front, I will report on the OGLF Board Meeting that was just held and then we will go to the lines to see what all of you are thinking about regarding space.
