Hey Jamey,

Your trust in the system is admirable, but unprovable. You are speaking from a comfortable position, from a direct result of your competence, plus a certain 'secret ingredient' that none of us is allowed to see.

I can assure you that there are those among us (an admitted minority, but including myself) that are honest, by-the-book, well-trained, and experienced who did not share your view of the situation. It should come as no surprise to you that we are sadly lacking that 'secret ingredient' that would place us in STAR's favor.

I most certainly respect your right to have an opinion; I just don't share it, and I'm not alone.
