Yes, especially if someone brings a proposal ... even the seed of a 
proposal. If it's just grousing about the way things are without 
suggestions for change, well, we can do that, too---but only as time 
permits at the end of the meeting.

By the way, if you plan to come, Alan, do you have a preference for 
Wednesday or Friday? RSVP to me, only.
