Jonathan did ask me to go ahead with mine since we were long overdue
however, in retrospect, he also asked me to explicitly note that in my
summary and I didn't quite do that. Sorry for that.

This is what you're taking issue with?

  As part of the voting process, some directors chose to publicly 
  restate their concerns with the applications that had been discussed
  during the executive session.

It would have been better to leave it ambiguous as to whether these
concerns were stated in the executive session or whether they were
raised for the first time after the executive session?

The way I saw it, the whole point of those statements after the
executive session was to *restate* concerns publicly for the record ...
not to have a whole new conversation.
