Hi Jerry, At what point does it become foolish to keep hoping that something that's not working - in spite years of efforts to fix it - will somehow get (itself?) fixed? Let's remember that when things are not working there is damage done. How much damage should be piling up before people agree to re-consider even basic and highly cherished assumptions? I don't have an algorithm for resolving the questions above, but I have a conviction that keeping a hold on "hope" no matter what, and against all evidence is not a healthy response. Racheli.
