Because the sizes of both WIM1 and WIM2 have decreased, WIM2 will join WIM1 at Columbus. They will continue to travel together until such time as the group is too large to travel together again. Paul is aware of our coming to Columbus, and Arlene is aware that we are traveling together, at least for a short period of time. Do I need to do anything further since a note will have to be made on WIM2.
