   I, too, am okay with patrick. much of what patrick 
writes seems worth discussion. 

   I have no idea about donation jars other than my 
supposition that they're there to bring in money for 
rent and other expenses, not for food or drinks or 
toilet paper or anything else. i.e., seems to me that 
all money in the donation jars is to go to the 
treasurer.

This accusation was leveled by a fellow who claimed to see this take place at 3 AM while the witness was gaming at NB. I've been told others have seen him do this on other occasions, but rather than do things in the dark behind closed doors, I thought I'd ask the list if anyone else can corroborate. Maybe we can set up some sort of formal process for dealing with thieves  in the process!
