I'll preface by saying, I have spent my entire adult life dealing with society. I have seen and dealt with all kinds people and just when I thought I have seen and dealt with them all, I am confronted with yet another one I thought could never exist. You ask, what do I have in mind? My common sense. It allows me see things and people for what they are. The ARRL currently is what it is. Until the powers that be vacate the building, it will remain that way. There is no sugar coating it. There is nothing good about it. I see no silver linings. The cup is not even close to half full. Again, until the responsible parties leave, change will never come. Therefore, I will patiently wait and call it what it really is. Now Chip... Only you know why you say and do what you do.
