If there is one thing I am able to say about this, it is there is a
positive side... to it all ... (though the 3rd of the ICA's employees
who are about to loose their jobs may not see it this way).

Reading the article by JJ Charlesworth makes our own communities whether
real or virtual, all the more valuable and worth the effort.

If it's stupid to dream of what may seem impossible, then I'm stupid,
and I'm going to be stupid for the rest of my life :-)
