Actually in fact it would be untrue to say that personally I was
dissapointed by the surprise nature of the announcement. I was not,
nor am I yet. To my mind there is quite some virtue for even a
board to be bold and act decisively.

What *I* think is the real short-coming in this instance, is that
the decision did not come with more information on who were the
people who *had* the boldness to so act, and what their reasoning
was, and what the alternatives considered were, and who were their
proponents on the board.

The way this was done suggests that individuals on the board are
plenty bold to act, when they don't have to individually own up
to acting, and share their thoughts behind the acts publically.
