I'm not sure it counts as an insinuation if it's true. They bought a Board
seat. Honestly, I don't remember much dispute about this point when it
happened in 2009 and looking back at the press releases at the time, it
doesn't seem as though anyone was trying to hide this point. My original
comment was only to say that if someone else (another group or organization)
were willing to put up $2 million or more, another Board seat would probably
become available. It's not as though the Board is incapable of changing its
own structure to meet outside demands.
