Hmmm... Well, one would think that someone who is a TRUE leader of a
profession- would want to participate in a world wide discussion
available via the net. Of course some people really just don't have the
15 minutes it might take- what with their work, their family
responsibilities and Monday night football. <G>

Of course some people really just don't get it- they don't understand
how powerful this medium of communication is- they think that going to a
state wide meeting a few times each year or reading the SAF Journal is
really being "with it". And of course most people have no pretension of
"leadership". They're excused. I'm only going to pick on those who think
highly of themselves but won't expose the vacuum in their frontal lobes
to the rest of us. <G>
