  1. What a disappointment that was. They all got together for just 60 minutes – spoke for 30 minutes – and allowed 30 minutes for calls which numbered about TEN. There was nothing said than what we didn’t already know – except for the ‘modelling’. I called 5 to 10 minutes after they opened up the phone lines, and sat on hold the entire time until they cut the meeting off at 3 pm.
