The difference is that Brad gave about a month's notice. Danny left last
Tuesday with no prior notice. Danny's resignation caused some comment on
internal-l. Anthere decided that since we were talking about resignations,
this would be a good time to announce Brad's pending resignation, also to
internal-l. That is why Brad has chosen this time to make his announcement
to foundation-l, simultaneously with Danny's announcement. The close
timing is artificial. Brad was careful to make this point on internal-l,
so I don't think he will mind me making it here.
