Re: ABSOLUTELY NO ATTACHMENTS



As someone who founded and directs a nonprofit organization, I sympathize
with Peter, am appalled by Debby Turner's chutzpah, but not at all
surprised:  unfortunately, this is often the way people who are
adept at "using" act; they believe everything is "for" them and
everyone owes them.  It is not easy to be a mediator, it is not easy
to handle difficult people but I believe that Peter is among the best
where this is concerned.

Thank you, Peter.
