just so it's not the brits, who have recently demonstrated that are
neither informed or pragmatic.  but martians, i want martians! :)

but there are appointed nomcom members.  you are objecting to them,
saying they are not capable of being informed and pragmatic.  please
justify that attack or withdraw it.

personally, i would have liked to see a wider dispersion.  but this does
not induce to accusing those chosen of bias and incompetence.
