    Default Deja Vu all over again... Old thread, same old MAAST controversy...

    Someone sent me a link to an old thread.

    "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it" George Sanayana

    If you have a few minutes, you will see MANY parallels to MAAST today.

    You're right, there are a lot of parallels. Mostly, people thinking there's some behind the scenes conspiracy and mass hysteria.

    Seriously, what else are you referring to that you see as a parallel?

    So will you admit that there is no secrecy behind closed doors?

    it should be open, so everyone can see all the finger pointing that happens and the same bickering that happens on front pages. I'm speaking from my experience on bod when I served, but I'm sure it's still happening.

    So do away with the front office where sensitive information may be discussed concerning individuals, sponsors, and so forth. Is that what you are advocating? Do away with that one area where the bod can vent their frustrations over the nitnoid issues and debate the various aspects of running the organization? Make that public? I think, even you, can agree that there are larger issues involved. How many bod meetings have you attended since they publicly made it open? I dare say you haven't made a single one.

    Can't have your cake and eat it too. I would tell you to step up, Chris although I know you'll just have an excuse as to why you don't.
