I know that Jim Barker is very busy running the CRF (as the owner) and is constantly working on and updating SearchMaster (as the owner), as well has having other interests and a family. I also know that he does peruse most of these forums, and that when he has something to add to a discussion he will.
I think you're a member of the CRF, and if you wish, you can extend the invitation to him (formally or informally).

As for Miss Lil aka Teach, Lillian Morson, I know she's at least in semi-retirement and no longer takes part in these online discussions, although she did in the infancy of the internet, when we were on Prodigy, and other internet formats. I don't even know how to reach her. In addition, we now have what I would consider quite a few learned reporters, scopists, etc., in the area of grammar and punctuation where the majority of questions will be properly answered. I also note that the majority of members of this forum are also members of other forums catering the the reporting world, and would daresay that they know who the "experts" are.

Ooh, exciting, Kathy! You should share some of what you learned with us here.

thanks for inviting me, Marla.
I just finished a grammar and punctuation class
at the courthouse today, (I know, it's Saturday)
given by Margie Wakeman Wells. she gives these
'classes' all over the country. pretty neat "class."

I'm glad to test what I know and what we went
over today!

Phil, maybe you could convince Lillian and Jim to join our little group here. It would be awesome to have them on here, wouldn't it?

Thanks for the invite, Marla. My default authority is Miss Lil (Lillian Morson), then Gregg's, then Jim Barker at CRF

Welcome, people! Glad you're here. Punctuation isn't easy to begin with, but applying proper punctuation rules to the spoken word is a challenge only reporters can appreciate. So let's chat about it, throw around rules, and figure it out together.
