the PDP has inherent mechanisms for self-correction.  i think one such 
important step was taken, by the removal of the proven inexperienced 
previous co-chairs.  and yes, more needs to happen, and i am hopeful it 
will.  what it needs are individuals willing to act on those.

and that’s where we differ andrew;  i am way less doom-and-gloom about 
the future  :-)

stay safe,
