The Tiger and the Skateboard Punk · So I said to the ori­en­tal guy, the one with the cru­el mus­tache and spiked hair, “Get me a tiger.” His eyes widened: “A Tiger?” But then “OK.” Out­side, the skate­board ca­reened down­hill, death and the law wait­ing ...

This step is im­por­tant be­cause many peo­ple are (like me) too busy to read suc­ces­sive drafts of stan­dards doc­u­ments, so they wait un­til Last Cal­l. We’ll be re­view­ing the lat­est Editor’s Draft, which got post­ed yes­ter­day. I per­son­al­ly think it’s get­ting very close to Last-Call qual­i­ty. It’s a pub­lic doc­u­ment and you might dis­agree with me; if you’d like to get in our faces in Ja­pan, go read it, sub­scribe to our pub­lic mail­ing list, and get your in­put in be­fore Satur­day morn­ing. Do not un­der any cir­cum­stances email me pri­vate­ly; this has to be done in pub­lic for a bunch of im­por­tant rea­son­s.
