Absolutely. The vast majority of the comments attached to donations during
the fundraiser were nothing short of glowing. It made me feel proud to be
part of the project just as a volunteer, and it surprises me that the board
doesn't feel the same way.

What I *am* disappointed about is that any criticism about the board -
criticism offered as a gesture of goodwill and an invitation to improve
ourselves - is either met with defensiveness, or the long-suffering air of a
martyr. It's not us vs the board. It's us with the board, trying to make
sense of things.
