Wow, yesterday I discovered a World War II topic that my father *didn't* want to discuss. Kamikazi airplane attacks and their relavance to the modern world. He dropped that subject like his hands were incorporeal.
Talked to the state securities board. My application was received on the 10th, and they have an average turnaround time of 14 days. That's today. So, I'll probably know something this week. I'll try to be good and wait until Friday before I call them again.
