Well said!

Jeff's presentation was largely directed at the subject (FF program integration) that I wanted to hear about. I don't have to like the results, but I definitely got my explanations. I took notes on items of interest to NW elites & posted them on NW forum immediately after the Q&A.

Bottom line is, (1) they already know we're unhappy, (2) we now better understand why they made us unhappy, and (3) they're unlikely to do much, if anything, to make us happier.
Thanks especially for your feedback, Mike. I know you had an agenda as the torch bearer for unhappy NW elites at the Q&A session and I'm glad to hear that they were able to discuss at least some of your concerns.
