Ed and all,

  Yes maria I would also be interested in a difinitive answer to Ed's
most important question as well.  Please advise fully.  Let me also 
be clear, I do not believe that staff should not have this power
or ability, but that such should be spelled out difinitively as such
a power could be miss used accordingly.
