Went to the first Edgemoor KCI "Dog and Pony Show" this evening, nothing new there, the design being pushed is still the same 25-year old "run down the entire length to catch your plane while hurdling crowded rows of seats" crap you've flown into and out of a dozen times.

The "input from you" they ask for is a validation technique called "Directed Result Questioning", where they select the question to be asked and you get to choose one of the answers they have provided for you.

If you have any REAL questions or concerns, don't waste your time attending any of these farces, but if you are in it for the entertainment value, it's a good laugh.

Oh, and don't buy into any media hype, this thing was very sparsely attended, 75 non-performers tops. The media Babble-heads were desperate for interviews.

One last thing, if any Management from local TV Stations reads this, please buy your reporters some Breath Mints.
