Anybody looking for the actual statement: go to the Nov. 15 Morning Report. The link posted above changes daily.

Congrats! But after reading the citation, I wondered, "Did the Ron Kerbo we all know have an identical twin with the same name?" This fellow they are describing sounds so *serious*.... :-)

Just joking, Mr. Kerbo -- there is more than one way to keep the machine so confused that they do the right thing in spite of themselves!

It's been a pleasure knowing you and what you've done for caving over the years. I know you miss New Mexico and your stone house, up on the hill, but you were always there with open arms for cavers; and, to sit, drink, and listen to some of your wild tales are great memories of life; and then bed down on your open porch. We'll never forget the Tularosa NSS Convention, that's for sure!Thanks for being you and BIG CONGRATS!
