I'll play devil's advocate here. I appreciate Steve's posts, not just
because he's passionate about his feelings, but mainly because I've
learned quite a bit from him on ways to approach the problem of the aging

membership, attendance, and revenues. As a member of the Society's Board
of Directors, I find his ideas very welcome.
