If you have never attended the new format travel management comment meetings, you are in for a treat I think. They are very different than they used to be, with special interest groups competing for mic time and monopolizing the same three or four "talking points". Now, once a point is made, it's made, and you have to comment on other aspects of motorized travel. The result is much more balanced, nuanced, and complete, and all participants get educated in the process and actually have to build consensus.

Yep, very interesting. Came away from the Pike meeting with a warm fuzzy :)

To bad that (in yet another in a long line of Under Secretary Rey's screw ups) The whole deal is on hold for now.
