Actually, no. 2008 was the first year with ED working for the whole
year. If I remember well, Sue was working just two-three months during
2007. The first recession year for WMF will be 2009, but I think that
there are a lot of space for improving fundraising.

I remember an anecdotal situation from 2006 or so: WM DE gave some
money to WMF and WMF didn't know what to do with that. I don't think
that it would be the case now.

So, the whole situation is much less about the recession and much more
about us. (Yes, not just about WMF, but about all of us.)
