Since You Asked (Gwen Moritz Editor's Note)

I am not personally acquainted with any of the current AYPN board members, and I surely don't fall into the "young professional" category, so my interest in this has been purely journalistic. (I don't even mind that one of the e-mails expressed little admiration for Arkansas Business. We learn more from our critics than from our fans.)

I do hope that AYPN survives this unfortunate episode and thrives in the future. I know some of the people who were involved in its early days, and they are first-rate young adults who had a worthy goal of developing professionalism and professional contacts.

I hope people like those founders will rise up at the February 2008 election and populate the board of directors with serious-minded candidates who are capable of learning from their predecessors' mistakes.
