Roger,
Thanks for all your efforts. I especially appreciated your comments about FAs' responses to some of your points. It was a good insight to see him responding in a manner I can understand, bringing the somewhat mysterious world of corporate management into light. His anger and reactions are understandable; new ideas and the feeling of an outsiders presumption to 'interfere' comes with the status quo of being in a relatively isolated enviornment, somewhat the norm theses days it seems.

In contrast, I have been to some of Ben & Jerrys stockholders meetings which are the next best thing to a Dead concert; there's a fine mix of irreverence and intellegent thought to address stockholders and board members issues, all in an inclusive manner. Even the most outrageous suggestions from individuals are addressed in some respectful manner, even though most of them never even see the light of day at the podium or get near the microphone during Q&A. It seemed to be a healthy process to me.
So perhaps there's some happy medium? Are you encouraged by the process? It seems you're considering moderating your approach the next time you meet, assuming this is an ongoing project.


So when's the movie: 'My Meeting with Fred" going to be released?
