> For my $.02, I agree with Rob, it's impossible to have an organization
that deals in ideals quite a bit and not expect some political type
discussions. Keep it fair, relatively non-personal and try to be
persuasive. I would hope this organization could give each of us a forum
to express our ideas on the varied subjects that impact fish, the
environment and our daily lives.
