Howdy back, Buck!   
 
 Yes i wuz a 'TM stormtrooper' ("Initiations by hook or by crook!") in N. 
America before the 108 group was invented.  Back then, things were pretty much 
decided by regional coordinators.  Unfortunately, there was no 
complaint-department, no ombuds-type persons, nor initiator's-union to address 
grievances. 
 
 One recurring gripe was simply about getting advanced course-acceptance in 
time to catch our dam' travel arrangements.  We had operated local residence 
courses for years, no problem.  Center staffers were prompt and always nice 
with applicants, so they kept coming to courses -- it was easy and fun.   Then 
a couple of 'Siddhas' arrived from Switzerland to take-over the center.   After 
alienating most of the 'strong' meditators, and generally screwing things-up, 
they disappeared back to Europe.  Our invincible-center closed shortly 
afterwards.  Bye bye, boys...
 
Surely by now, two-way communication channels are well-established and help 
with problems faced by teachers and administrators in the field.    Recalling 
all this stuff today, I also remember that we didn't touch others very often.  
Now, research is showing that friendly human contact helps develop empathy in 
people.   Geeze, we could've used more of that...

Executive TM Governor? Were you an executive Gov back in Switzerland, Holland 
or North America? Do you go back to the days of 108's?
