I would like to respond to this My Lord.  1) Even if there is a College 
established, if you don't like it then by all means don't join it or keep 
your voice in to change it. 2)As long as I have known these gentlemen, ( 
Robin and Michael many years) their words are always strong and well chosen, 
but they also losten well and take constructive criticism. They may well 
think their idea is the best, but not the only one. 3) Pardon the mis quote 
but, ask not what the college can do for you but what you can do for the 
college.  Please excuse if this came off harsh it was not my intention.
