Only once did anything harsh get said, and I was the one to say it. We were evaluating the 10th National Gathering from this summer. People were looking on the bright side, looking past disappointments, etc. I detailed, forcefully but without rancor, some things that NAUMS had found objectionable. They were noted, and we moved on. I didn't press the issue; I was heard.
I'm looking forward to getting some long-term fixin' done in this agency. It just might happen -- who knows? God can do anything.
