In regards to “Workplace Compliance Services” letters/forms

In November, 2018, I received a letter from an entity named Workplace Compliance Services, and the letter was in regards to filing a Colorado “Periodic Report” form.

Dear NRA and Republican-led congress and White House, how many children have to die before you’ll do something?

Stargazer cruise in Key West, Florida (a bucket list item) alvin April 14, 2016 - 1:35pm

I guess that in general, a goal of mine is to see the nighttime stars as much as possible, and this seems like a great way to see them.
