And among all of the things that I’ve been so grateful to feel this year, being able to not only get together but to do so with no hesitation or reservation, is awesome.

Now, all that said, I’m here to talk about the contract. I have some thoughts. I have collected some thoughts. I feel pretty good about what my understanding of the situation is.
