Blacky was on a crusade to recruit new members on behalf of every civic and philanthropic organization near the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. He practiced his persuasive appeal on the Face of Everyman. Blacky offered a litany of names of groups from which the venerable sage might choose: Lions, 4H, AARP, NOW, NRA, ACLU, Optimist, Rotary. Normally stoic, the sage was elated to learn that he would be making so many new friends. He said Yes to all.
