Mr. Rosenzweig,

You are advancing the thesis "the GAC has never interfered with anything
is categorically wrong". 

Personally, I expect every AC and SO to participate in some aspects of
policy development and implementation. Why you view the involvement of
the GAC in policy development and implementation as interference does not
interest me.

However, in support of your thesis you pointed to the GAC's issuance of
an objection to the DCA Trust application.

Ignoring some IRP, the process and outcome of which is of no interest to
me, and whether anyone projects their idea of "fairness" into the Board's
action on this, or any other application, just what must public bodies do
when a private party asserts a speculative claim on an aggregate of public

This isn't a trick question or somthing that requires a great deal of
intelligence -- what did the GAC fail to do -- in your view -- prior to
arriving at a view on the merits of the DCA Trust applicaiton for the
string "africa"?

Your claim is something improper occured, exactly what was it?
