I didn't need this. Can I go back to 10am and start over again?
9:34pm: I didn't quite get a do-over, but I did get a chance to speak my piece and do my share of listening -- something I hope I did at least a passable job at.
I think things are mostly smoothed over, and that's a relief. The part that upsets me is we had to take some very bumpy, unpleasant roads to get there from here. With luck it hasn't damaged things permanently.
Tensions are simply running too high on all fronts in the Pack these days.
