I too fully appreciate the committee, I never meant to come across where 
I didn't appreciate them. There is absolutely no way that this election 
could be done without this committee. This shouldn't be a thankless 
committee. I just was not fully aware of the reasons for the late 
results, now that I am, it makes it much easier to understand.
