Dang, that's a lot of legwork, Rick. Were you able to resist the temptation to paint the 89-year-old with the walking stick?
Interesting and well-written.
Having people ask questions at individual tables, so that the institution gives the appearance of hearing the public's concerns, but without the whole room being able to hear unflattering questions raised and addressed, and so no real discussion or challenges to the official answer can take place, was a tactic also employed at the clergy sex abuse "listening sessions" that my local Catholic bishop held last October. Now I know where he got it from.
