[Artemisia] our SCA bureaucracy at work

The following is from a post on one of the SCA mailing lists I read.  
The actual topic doesn't matter too much since the discussion had 
veered to talking about the SCA equestrian policy.  One part of that 
discussion is quoted below for your reading pleasure.

The only other thing I will mention right now was that I did not expect 
to lose the other half of my remaining lung (ie, from laughing in the 
middle of a bad cold) from reading one of the more 
bureaucratically-minded SCA lists, which is usually just a slight more 
exciting the SCA announcements list.

Enjoy (unless you have a cold, in which case I apologize)
