Welcome to the republic!

If you were in my place, would you do what I wanted? Why?

Well, you got a better deal than Queensland or Tassie. (-:

I thought you'd just finished saying that the Internet offered a lot more 
possibilities than a ring-around? Here's a bright idea, just to show you that 
your WA rep is indeed on the ball and can do stuff besides Google on `Bret 
Busby' and browse through the email archives... "If I, with email, can have 
conversations with people [even] overseas" then:

    Why not address your concerns through a different Committee member?

That's one reason why we have seven of them. Just don't alienate them all, and 
you should be right. (-:

By the way, what _are_ your concerns? Do you have anything you've not voiced 
yet, or is this one of those "in principle" questions?

Cheers; Leon
