Tony,

I think it is fair to say that with the President and the Vice President's
committment to 're-inventing government' that all issues are on the table.
It is important that we discontinue practises that do not serve the public
well and re-inforce those that do.  How will we know which is which unless
we look at all in full sun light?  And how will we find those new ideas
that, informed by experience, suggest new and better solutions?
