Recently, I found my accordion file of ideas for what to do after graduating from college.  Apparently I had a lot of them.

There were some real treasures in there. Including, in the "Acronyms" pocket, my initial application to be a Special Agent with the Secret Service (USSS).

I never pursued that one.

But the true scope of my youthful planning is evidenced by the last pocket. Which was, needless to say, conspicuously empty.

Hey, guess what? The new & improved League site is finally good to go! Possibly at the expense of my nervous system, but totally worth it.

So go ahead: read posts that are actually aligned! click links with impunity! admire the new logo!

And if you are the nostalgic type, take a moment to bid farewell to the original League design, which I literally cut-and-pasted at my kitchen table late one night in March 2012.


Adieu, old friend.
