Hi Olsin --

Thanks for letting us all know!  I have been working on the Marketing 
beat for FWN for the past couple of issues, and have been an Ambassador 
since last Fall for Indiana, USA.  Speaking for myself, as a newcomer, I 
am happy to step aside and let those who have paid their dues more than 
I take on this leadership role.  I certainly can go back to covering the 
Marketing beat if that is the outcome that makes the most sense here.
