"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."
