Steve and All The Frustrated People,I feel your pain.  I can barely keep
track of the analogies, let alone support of policies!  I would like to
chime in with Dan here.  You all elected us, and we are here to help you and
do our best for the community.  Please feel free to contact us if you need
clarification or to express your support or opposition of a policy.
I thank you for participating. More than that, I thank you for caring enough
to take the time for thoughtful responses.  Please don't give up!
