I agree - I'm not really a good candidate for any President sort of
position since I'm a little lacking in public social graces (I can
always be relied on to tell the truth, which is a serious problem in
such schmoozing related jobs) though I would be a reasonable candidate
for President of Technical Vices. Or something like that. John & Paul
(so what happened to George and Ringo?) can tell you about their
experiences surviving having me as Architect-in-Chief - which is a grand
sounding title for a job if ever I heard one.
