Well if I was a member of the majority that voted for the Pope I would
be pleased. If I was amongst the minority that voted against having the
Pope I would be unhappy. If I was the Catholic parent that paid my kid
$50 to nominate the Pope I would be overjoyed. If I was the staff member
that had been looking forward to facilitating at Sudbury next year but
got bumped by the Pope's good fortune I would be looking for another
job.

It all depends on what role I was playing at Sudbury as to how I would
work things out Monica.

But that was not my question.

I wanted to know that if the majority wanted to invite someone that was
clearly their superior could they do so? Even someone that had an
agenda, "intending to counteract the effects of a real or perceived
societal evil." Have they ever done so? If so how long did he or she
last?

What if Sheri "strong feminist" Ponzi played her cards right and got
elected to the staff at Sudbury? Would Alan and Joe be really really
upset? Dale
