Crazy … but … trying to figure this one out will drive you crazy. Remember when Donald Rumsfeld once said:

You might wonder: Was this position announcement discussed at the Tuesday night council meeting? Well, this was included in the Meeting packet. It is page 15 of the 153 page Meeting packet.

It’s shown on page 21 of the packet again.
