It's also interesting to note that the "fresh blood" that are now
running LOA have completely forgotten about all the efforts of those
that came before them. To all intents and purposes you would think they
founded the association. Whilst I am quite happy with where the org is
going and the people that are running it, it is a bit sad to think that
those that founded and ran the org (and built up its nice little kitty
for the new lot to use) are completely forgotten.
