I absolutely agree, Angie.  And it was the actions of those very riders,
along with Dane's action in an official capacity, that made such a statement
on behalf of what AERC is and stands for.  Dane's withdrawal of the
sanctioning would not have had anywhere near the impact if the AERC riders
had not also packed up and left.
