Dear All:

Some of us are suggesting changes be made to the format in order to  
foster more discussion. Others of us are suggesting changes be made  
to the format because we are not interested in the recent  
discussions. It would seem as if some of us are either unimpressed or  
are overwhelmed by the volume of email generated in recent discussions.

This reminds me why there is an OFF button, as well as a SCAN button,  
on the radio in my truck: If I do not like what is being played by  
one station I can turn the darned thing off or request that it find  
me a more agreeable song on another station. I tend to sample threads  
here, read those threads for which I have a certain interest, and  
ignore those other threads for which for I lack sufficient  
enthusiasms. Life is interesting, but some parts of it are far more  
interesting than other parts of it.

Allow me to suggest the obvious to those of us who would have Jim and  
NOAA change things here and now:

You see the need, you know what is wrong with the here and now, you  
know the solution, and (more importantly) you know it shall not take  
a great deal of heavy lifting on the collective parts of those who  
make your requested changes.

Go ahead. Do it yourself. You have the advantage of knowing it ain't  
gonna be hard to accomplish.
