Re: [ga] nominations

Joe and everyone else,

  I don't see a "Richard" either.  Is this Randy guy a nut or
something?  Sure seems like it!

 Randy, it's Joe and Frank here.  I don't see Richard, do you see Richard?
 In any event, it's you maybe happy with icann's finances, I'm not.  I want
 to know why it's costing us 5 million to run a rinky dink operation which
 only requires 600,000/yr.  So if your happy with an operating increase of
 830% may I suggest you stay out of financial discussions.  I don't think
 your qualified here, the art department is done the hall, engineering in
 the rear.
 Sorry Randy, but this is a critical issue.  5 million today, 500 million
 tommorrow, that is the nature of governing bodies.
