At 5:30 pm today I turned in my badge, laptop and keys, and I walked out of the birth certificate factory for the last time.
Over my 30-year career I had the opportunity to serve on a national committee on vital records fraud prevention, I met several state registrars, counting a few as friends, and worked with the National Center for Health Statistics and CDC on national standards for vital records and immunization registries. That all sounds rather grand, although I was just one of many participants in these things.
I don’t promise more time spent on this blog (heaven knows I spend enough already), but I do hope to be more flexible for travel in the future and to be able to report first hand on some Obama conspiracy events, and I hope even to meet some of you in person.
Note that I will be out of the country January 10-24, and probably not updating the site much during that period.
