    Since our information seems to be at odds, I figure it might be a manner of definition. What happens if a staffer at Wheaton refuses to join in on morning meditation, especially
if that reason is backed by a basic belief (some people, myself included, simply don't like group meditation).

    Thank you for the information. Believe it or not, that makes me feel a lot better. I have seen a lot of damage done by commitees of one pretending to represent a lot more people,
and getting followers that way. The empty spots in the web page seemed to point to a lack of people other than the page owner in the group. I have heard stories, for example, of a
vote taken by a meeting of eight people supposed to represent the opinions of the majority of members of an entire Theosophical Federation. Such things are ridiiculous,
anti-democratic, and anti-Theosophical; don't you agree?

    I agree that it was far more than "housekeeping". But, as I have said, it was represented to me (as the secretary of the NYTS bylaws commitee) as far more than housekeeping, and
I do not recall the word "housekeeping" used by anybody but its opponents. Seriously, if you can give me a source, I would appreciate it.

    It is 1:30 AM, and I might be getting a little thick...what are the sister organizations of the ES, and what is the WP and the NL?
