i thought proposals cannot be blocked until a week later? even if some 
people say "we're going to block this", it's still valuable to review 
the topic at the following meeting, if just for the sake of discussion. 
I hope you do bring it up next week, as i will be there to support. Go Al!

Al, I only half-agree-- the problem is not that Members have more power 
than AM's. The problem is that Members who block have more power than 
OTHER MEMBERS. That's what causes stagnation.
