Just like the magnificent Lucha Libre warriors in their wrestling endeavors, I have attained the pinnacle of astronomy.
This past weekend I was voted in as the President of the Riverside Astronomical Society (and the crowd goes wild).
So, what does this mean for you? Well…nothing really, I just thought I’d share my achievement with everyone. But now that I am in power, the skies the limit!
I intend to be a firm, yet gentle dictator. Bending the proletariat to my will and …. what’s that? I don’t have any real power? I only get to listen to problems and try and fix them? I want a recount!!!
Actually, I am very excited. I have some plans for increasing participation for various programs and bringing more to the membership. It will be a challenging task, but I look forward to sharing some of it with you and other astronomy lovers around the world.
So like the Luchadores, it may look fake, but it is very real and you have to be at your best. I am honored to be asked to do this task and I hope I can live up to expectations. Now pass me my crown!
