Yeah, that's my fault.  Hilariously, the minutes on record a couple of
years ago record me reminding everyone we have to do that.

I think we should actually have a proposition which can actually be
voted 'yea' or 'nay', actually.  The above isn't really so much a
'proposal' as a 'question'.  I think you can only confuse those terms
where marriage is involved.

However it works out, I'm going to vote to not spend money on
something we're not using whenever I'm actually allowed to do that.
