I agree Eric. I think there is much to be read between the lines of the 
story. For what little I have to offer this group, this is my $.02.

The plain and simple truth about life is that $h*t happens. Situations 
develop and sometimes it is impossible to see the chain of events that lead 
to the overall outcome. IAC and EAA is based around politics, as is any 
organization. I'm not saying what was done was right or wrong, just that 
sometimes we need to let life take its course.

Is it OUR duty as IAC members to stand up for what we believe is right...To 
make our morals and ethics stand out and fight for what we believe in. 
HOWEVER, we must realize that we will never hear the entire truth. There is 
Karen's story, IAC president's story, then there is the truth...

As with all good things, they must come to and end at one time or another. I 
am sure Karen would be happy to know that she has a lot of supporters. But I 
think it is best (in my humble opinion), to let things take their course. If 
IAC does not find an editor as good as Karen was, then that is the time to 
make our voices and views known.

Although there is much to be read between the lines, I think it is best that 
we don't even try. The letters between the lines are in a different language, 
and if we try to read them, we may mis-interpret them and cause even more 

For now, I think the politics have gotten deep enough, and perhaps it is time 
to let the issue rest.

My humble opinion only,
