You may recall in 1990 during the Bing's episode, how TSA jumped all over on
Gerda for accessing membership list, which was not after all such a big deal
as she was a member with a very high degree of integrity and gave a long
service to Olcott (not one of those highly paid one's) and how the ES guy
suspended her for it.

If Betty had the foresight and eaten the crow very quickly after the
doctor's certificates' were publicised, the damage to her would have been
mitigated. Let us see how things develop further.


PS: Chuck or anyone else -- anyone has a copy of the message posted to
theos-l, describing what Gerda went thru.
