Thanks for letting us know the results, Janet ~ how wonderful for the winners ~ congrats to all of them. I am proud to be a member of the Public Safety Writers Association along with J. Michael Orenduff - whom I met at the PSWA conference in Las Vegas last year; and how lucky I was to be able to meet you in San Fran at B-con, Janet! Enjoy the rest of the weekend :-)
