I hereby declare the Katie Rule

Our former and beloved Ricochet member Katievs (If you see this, come back, Katie!) used to include me, named by name, in the original post of several conversations.

    As they should.

    I wish I could read faster. 

    But, I think this is a great idea. You know I did a post recently on the telepathy, clairvoyance and predestination thing. Well, the idea came from a comment exchange with Paul Snively. I should have PMed him. I just thought that he would see it but he didn’t participate and I feel bad about that. So great idea.
