Wow. When I read Margaret Webb’s incredible commentary on the NFRC, (Tuesday’s USGNN) I was really left in awe. She was able in 4 paragraphs to breakdown the on-going adventures better than I have in years of ranting and raving. The question is… will it matter? Sadly, it won’t. The NFRC and the people, who blindly support it, will ignore or avoid the incredibly persuasive and intelligent arguments and points that Marg brings forth. The thing that will make the difference is the basic possibility/probability that the program as it heads down the path right now will fail in spectacular fashion. The angst comes from the fact that the NFRC will steam ahead and the rest of us will have to deal with an epic mess… one that many people did all they could to avoid… but were ignored….
And one more note… until someone can explain to me how the NFRC adding an IG Certification program and having a major player and board member of NFRC to benefit greatly from such an un-necessary program is not the least bit squirrelly, then I won’t shut up… I mean.. c’mon…. As a co-worker always says about NFRC… “follow the money….”
