"Whatever happened to: 'of the people, by the people, for the people' ? and 'the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few'? When 95% of the members want something why shouldn't THEY prevail ?" Maybe more than 95% of the people on this Board. Maybe 1% of ACBL ...

"I most certainly NEVER testified on behalf of this person. I find it offensive for him to use my name in any regard, especially regarding some pretense of innocence." Wow!! I'm looking forward to his response to this statement.
