Let us agree to disagree, then, and more importantly, stop slinging the
discussion around Lists that are unrelated to the Chirurgeonate. We
certainly have differing views of the 'truth'.

I will add this one comment, however. I respect many Chirurgeons immensely
and have enjoyed meeting with and working with most of them. And all of
those who I respect are not crying "our honor has been besmirched!" but
rather are working quietly and competently to regain the trust of the
populace and to weed out those few individuals who have given the Guild a
poor reputation. Anyone whose reaction to the Pennsic situation was concern
for the people in need of first aid rather than the 'status' of the
Chirurgeonate have my full respect.

As you say, there's been no report - so none of us know more than what has
been announced along with our own personal experiences. As you would guess,
mine have not been stellar.
