  • Of more importance, where were half of the people elected to represent us? If that many couldn't make it why wasn't it moved to another time?

  • If we can get by with four, why do we need the rest? Where I work if only about half of us showed up there would be a serious problem because we donít hire any completely unnecessary people.

    If you canít muster the willpower to show up to your job, we need to hire somebody who can.
