I agree with john, and I forgive you too Jenn. If I had known what you said, I would have done it. I did not know that "Megan's Law" had it's own "website". Thanks for the information though.

This is weird. "Peter Fournier", whoever that is, is now sending messages for Chris to contact "him", at "louisa.hufstader@patch.com". Who is he and why is "he" using "her" name, I don't get it?

Hi Steven, Nothing weird. "I'm" the Guest Editor for Napa Patch right now as "Louisa" is on vacation. :) I'm monitoring "her" email. Feel free to contact "me" with any questions!
