I am too. But it’s nice to read some of the writer’s REASONS they made the changes. Though, since Larry did sign off on them, I never questioned their validity - especially since AAMC, FoE, DAAK and AA.org have all adopted them as the primary rule set.
Larry did more that just sign off on the LHTR. He has always been actively engaged in the discussions on all the topics.
Changes have been made because he wanted them made, but he has also accepted the arguments of others as valid for other changes. It has been a very fruitful exchange of thoughts and ideas.
I didn’t mean to imply that he took a passive role in the creation of the rules. (ie just signing them.) I mean that he agreed to the rules BY signing them. I’m sure he argued his case, looked at the evidence, and made decisions as well.
