"Eric has been a very effective speaker for our cause, but the
role of speaker also became leader, and that's why he's come in for
a lot of criticism."
"I do not suggest that we replace Eric with one individual who
can continue the role that he designed. Instead, we need about 10
good public speakers. I'm willing to do 1/10 of Eric's present
speaking load, it would be nothing new to me. We can find 9 other
people (or 8 new folks plus Eric) to do the rest. All of them will
have lives, avoiding the stress level that leads to burnout."
