Greetings to the SFGC founding history meeting:

The Clintons and the criminal and immensely destructive U.S. war against Iraq were closely bound up with the sudden wicked decision by Mayor Frank Jordan and other local officials back around 1993 to expel our Club from our more than half-century-old tenancy at the grand old temple located at 1881 Bush Street @ Laguna.

Given your present commendable initiative in laying out Club history, I hope before too long to go into the details of that critical chapter with which I was personally involved as Club secretary and resident night watchman and also as budding commentator on the then recently born Internet.

I also trust that both this afternoon and henceforward you will duly remember the role of our great leader (and my mentor) Shinji Dote 4-dan.

Wishing you the best of luck with your first meeting,

¡ Salud ! --Hal Womack (once "3-dan")
