I'm sorry to read this. Dissent is important and I for one believe
that someone fighting for the causes you represented was important. As
you have admitted, you are not a committee person so I hope you find
greater satisfaction in your change of direction. Being an engineer
will _always_ be more fun than being a bureaucrat.
