While I'm glad to see Mike back, I want to remind everyone that what he, or
any of us on the list, says is only credible if backed up by references to
official literature. Personally, I give little credence to statements by
unnamed officials at national. I urge us all to be cautious about what we
attribute to "national policy."
Sometimes, what we believe to be true is only a tradition that has become so
ingrained that it is treated as 'gospel.' When we actually check it out, we
find that way we are operating is actually in violation of published policy.
What we have to understand it that somethings can be bent, and others broken
but a few things must be according to the rules.
I have been challenged from time to time and, occasionally, I discover that
I have misread a word or two that changed the whole meaning of the statement.
Or, the information I have given was incomplete and therefore misleading, not
by intent but by oversight.
This list does not represent official policy. None of us have the right to
speak for national (via the list). But, we do remain a pretty good source of
fairly reliable rumors!!!
Mike, I'm glad to see you back and wish you well in your new job.
