Never mind H1N1... And, to be fair, I haven't bothered to look at our Politics forum until recently, but... What the fuck? Have people forgotten how long it takes to maneuver policies and opinions in national and world politics? Gazillions of dollars, euros, yen, and other currencies, along with millions of personnel (all the way from military troops to local public servants), are affected by such large-scale decisions. Those decisions, then, are NOT taken lightly. Something on a small scale like a condo or neighborhood association is enough of a pain in the ass -- even there, changes can't happen very quickly, if at all. Why does it seem like people are expecting faster results from much, much bigger organizations? It's not even specific to LPSG, either. The impatience I've read here only mirrors what I've heard on TV, on the street, and among some coworkers. I wonder how many of these whiners and complainers have either held public office, directed public organizations, or been in charge of large corporations.
