“Not far -- Yoda not far. Patience, soon you will be with him!”

We’re channeling our energy into having productive strategy and writing sessions –- Student Government is getting down to business. Posting over the weekend will continue to be slow. We plan to enter the coming week with strength; on Monday you'll see [greatly anticipated] constructive content and ingenuity, and a game plan for what's left of the semester.

I have one request for those of you who seem to be used to Madison student politics traveling at light speed: patience. A blog is suspected dead when there hasn’t been a post in a day and a half? A "government" is based solely on pointing out the failures of its predecessor... when the committee to form it has only been together for nine days? “No lasting changes can be engineering so rapidly”, Mr. Riechers at the DC points out. Haste makes waste –- a thing Student Government is bitterly opposed to making. We will hustle in these last few weeks, but remember what this process needs to be based on: massive input. To be sure, the members of Student Government will to bring plenty to the table, but our own convictions should be –- and will be –- only half the story. And gathering input from a student body of some twenty odd thousand students takes time.

Also ironic that while you preach calm progress, ASM is rushing at full speed possible to set up an election.

Yeah, that's what happens when you screw up so many times that you run the danger of nonexistence via your own laws ;)
