Caucus Director's Email Out of Service (Temporarily, we hope); & Mark Twain quote

Posted on April 18, 2024 at 03:09 PM

Technical note and comic relief: Caucus Director Lee Powell’s MicroSoft Outlook email is out of service. We hope this is temporary, but since Mr. Powell has the technological expertise of an oyster, the issue is still in doubt.

The unfortunate Mr. Powell clumsily pushed the wrong button and was ejected from MicroSoft Outlook, and he can’t get back in because he forgot his password. He has not been able to reach MicroSoft for a new password because he has been placed on hold for over an hour each time he has called over three days, and then disconnected.

(On the plus side, he has memorized the Muzak melodies they play while on hold.)

We have not been able to get through the cumbersome process for getting the password from the website.

They have a tutorial explaining how to use the website that lasts almost an hour, but I couldn’t understand it and started to get drowsy after 20 minutes on there.

If anybody needs to get in touch with LP, right now the only way is by phone at 202-360-6347.

Mark Twain’s advice on how to deal with a situation where you have choices that are both bad is the following:

“If it’s your job to eat a frog, eat him first thing in the morning.

If it’s your job to eat two frogs, eat the bigger one first.”

I have been pondering long and hard over how Mr. Twain’s advice can help me in my current dilemma. I guess he is too deep a thinker for me because I can’t figure it out.

I guess I’ll just have to keep trying. Surely I will reach MicroSoft before the May 30-31 Delta Caucus meeting by Zoom. Thanks–Lee Powell, Delta Caucus
