I will do my best to get substantive information to the community about
whatever issues are under debate. This is a membership organization, and
members have every right to weigh in on questions of the strategic direction
of the organization. If I seem reticent at various points, it is for one of
two reasons: I don't want people who have committed time to the TEI to be
pilloried for acting according to their conscience, and I don't want to
speak on matters of substance before I understand them.
