Hi Shaun, question about this ..

Eventually I do plan to put my hat in the ring, but possibly not this time
around - I'll most likely wait for someone from RH to retire. How many Red
Hatters are currently on the board, and should we replace Tru with a RH
person? I realize it isn't a requirement to be (or not to be) from RH, but
I think the board will be healthier if there are more non-RH people there,
and since Tru is not RH it would make more sense for someone else to take
the opportunity.
