It reminds me of the old Russia where a bunch of old guys elected their
party leader and nothing much was disclosed to the public about policy
decisions, until Mikhail Gorbachev, a middle aged lawyer came along and
dismantled the system and provided more tranparency. It is also possible
that Olcott's lawyer background had something to do with his being selected
to lead TS. Also, Gandhi was a lawyer. May be we need a Gorbachev clone to
fix TS and bring in younger successors.
