Yeah, it would be nice if they would be more proactive in managing this
kind of thing. The main reason I supported them was because they are
our main lobby entity in DC, but this kind of thing is really turning
into a mess that didn't need to happen. If I wasn't a life member, I'd
probably consider letting it lapse, too.
The question I have though, is "who is the alternative to support?"
