Of course you would give a D minus. Your arguments, comparisons and
analogies are always spot on and relevant while everyone else's is
hopelessly and haplessly off the mark. (I thought Clinton's analogy had
merit but then I guess I am among the ignorant.)
Robert you obviously care a lot about what AMSAT was and could be again.
You with your life experience, knowledge, connections to the aerospace
industry and proven ability to achieve should consider running for AMSAT BOD
and while you are at it become an officer. With you in office AMSAT can
secure the launch opportunities that are obviously being missed. Through
your leadership, engineering talent can be lured to design and build the
next generation of amateur satellites. Your charm and whit can be used to
draw the financial resources required to operate AMSAT and fund projects.
Come on Robert show us how things can really be done; run for BOD. Save us

bad comparison. Your house, my house(s) (grin), (insert names) house is
private property with an expectation both in common law, law, and ethics of
It is no where near the same as a public board which would not exist without
the funds of members who pay dues. If the AMSAT board members were doing
all the financial lifting for the board with no dues used then there might
be some better comparison...but ...
sorry the comparison is not even close. In fact it is frankly very
poor...about the worst one can have.
nice try. I would have to give you a D minus

> Yo, Robert - I'm coming over to your house this weekend. No, you didn't
invite me, but I'll show up anyway. I am bringing my sick St. Bernard - he
might mess up the carpet a little until he gets well. I might stay a week or
so, I dunno. I kinda like that artwork on your mantle - I think I'll take it
home with me when I leave. Sorry about the spilled Pina Colada stain on the
rug - I get excited while watching San Diego Chargers football. And I
knocked a hole in the wall of that back bedroom - to feed some cabling
through for the portable tower I brought with me. The smoke damage from that
little fire I accidentally started in the kitchen won't cost you too much in
repairs - and the awful smell will go away in a year or so, no biggie. Hey -
the fridge is now empty - great Omaha steaks, by the way ... and I used up
all your charcoal ...
> No, Robert, you would not welcome my presence in your house. You would ban
me for life. You'd change the locks and have a restraining order issued.

message board can be set up in any way its officials decide. Those that are
not allowed in have no legal recourse. Heck, there was a post today right
here that - if *I* were moderating the system - would never have been seen
by anyone else.
