Oh, @ginidietrich i'm just not that surprised. As someone noted below, we've already been through this at Augusta. Until big business decides it's an issue and members pull out - - don't expect any change at Augusta.

I'd really have to see that Remnick knew about this agreed to go-ahead with the review. Just doesn't sound like him - at all.

Let me just say, on behalf of pocket-protector-wearing, abacus-using, social-media-paranoid, bean-counters everywhere - - I'm offended.

There you are again, leaning to the right. Great post, though Les.
