Congratulations Mr. O'Keefe on your appointment, and with the insight and objectivity you present thoughts at these Forums, you will bring to this advocacy group "the wisdom to know what you can and cannot change" (pardon me, Dr. Niebhur, for the paraphrase of your inspirational words).

Excellent! The inmates are running the asylum. Naturally, George will need some guidance. We need a "Wish List for George" thread. Sorry George you're going to have to pretend you don't know us I guess. Seriously thanks for all the time you have put in here.
