Thanks to ebd10 for the initial post that confirmed that I was not the only person who believed that Zumbo needed a way back.
In all honesty, all I did was post on a few boards, exchanged emails and made some phone calls. Rich was out of town when the SHTF, but backed my play on boards that were calling for Zumbo’s head and hinting that my own would look better severed from my body for making the offer. As publisher, Rich had the last word and he not only agreed with the plan, but also attended the class himself.
Pat provided the training and Sheriff Ken provided the venue. In short, a lot of folks were involved in doing what we believed was the right thing to do.
