This letter was addressed to myself and their Excellencies.  I posted  
it to the list because, well, words failed me after reading it.

Since we are a non-profit group, any official communication within  
the organization is open to public review.  I believe in the  
transparency of the Offices of the SCA.  Thus it is my understanding  
that any communication between said offices are hereby open to the  
public, especially when they regard the final decision of a higher  
level officer regarding the appointment of a new officer to a local  

(*key OFF*)
Speaking as just another member of Namron, I'm incensed that Elodie  
would presume to put Moonschadowe's values upon our beloved and, dare  
I say it, long-lived Barony.  Namron is over 30 years young, while  
Moonschadowe is barely even a year out of the proverbial womb.  Also,  
Moonschadowe is a Province, not a Barony, and thus has a completely  
different social and political structure.  And how dare she imply  
that not only are we in desperate need of "younger more eccentric"  
people (we're quite eccentric already, thank you), but that our  
current membership is, to paraphrase, "old and busted."

With all due respect to what they have accomplished, I must state  
that WE ARE NOT MOONSCHADOWE!  Nor do we wish to be!  We are THE  

*huff... puff...*

I'll calm down now.
(*key ON*)

I plan to write a private letter to Elodie, her superior, my  
immediate superior, and the Crown (since Elodie implied their  
complicity with her ideas by stating "The kingdom is making a  
push ....") addressing Elodie's reasonings.  I will not post that  
letter to the list.  However since I stated before that I believe in  
the transparency of the office, I will gladly make a private copy to  
those who request it.

p.s. - This is in no way critical of our new Hospitaler, who is both  
young and quite eccentric.
