Smart decision by +Howard.  He sure does not want more trouble.  For 2002 through 2010 the Dio of FL lost 24 percent of Members, 31 percent of ASA, 29 percent of inflation adjusted Plate & Pledge,  51 percent of Infant Baptisms, and 51 percent of Marraiges. But will it fool all the people?  Time will tell,  Statmann
