I've already changed my mind twice, mainly because I heard about this decision from Keith Olberman, MSNBC pundit. He has a way of creating drama that can be a bit overwhelming. I decided to get a few more opinions. Now, I think the decision is probably OK. Our president, on the other hand, disagrees. He's not happy!
