Joe is 100% correct here. The topic committee had an open meeting during the
quad debate at CEDA and, while the attendance was better than normal, most
people decided to sleep in. Anyone can show up at any topic meeting and as
someone who has never been on the topic committee (but has attended half a dozen
meetings) I have never felt that my opinion was devalued or not considered.
My advice is get to KC or come to any of the topic meetings during the year.
Or work on a topic paper for next year (Steve is soliciting ideas now for
2007-2008). The claim that people are excluded from participating is just not
true. Unless having a meeting at 9:30 excludes people.

The idea that the topic process is "closed" is laughable. More likely people
grow lazy while they wait for the same 3 -7 people to flesh out a resolution
that they can complain about for the next year.
The posts from the leadership begging for more people to participate
outnumber Tuna's posts about the WDI. I won't get in to the Roe part of this
discussion but I have to dispute the portion of Nicole's post that identiifes this
process as insular.
