	I agree wholeheartedly.  Much to my regret, I was not able to attend
the aforesaid event.  If people had a good time, why stir up this kind
of thing?  If you disagree with others, why not try to reach some accord
with them?  If this is not possible, do you really feel someone is being
hurt?  If so, there is a system where you may pursue a complaint up the
chain of command.  Veiled references do not help anything and smacks of
politics more than whatever may have occurred at the event.
	I realize everything cannot be sweetness and light all the time,
but the undertones here feel like trouble.  If there's a problem, we
need to try to solve it.  "Politics" is nothing more than people trying
to reach their goals, which may be in opposition to other people's
goals.  "Dirty Politics" is when people use underhanded or dishonest
methods to reach their goals.
