I would suggest the you and Mark have a good talk first, then report here
with some specifics that you think need discussion, along with specifics
from the unnamed sources. The somewhat vague "some say" doesn't help much
and in the absence of specifics the discussion is likely to proceed along
the same old lines if it happens at all. Meanwhile there is a disturbance
in the force that makes us all uneasy.
