Why can't a small committee be fair? Where are the checks and balances 
in the "new" structure? I see one group investigating, another deciding 
the punishment, but no insurance that the latter group won't go 
overboard with punishment or give people a slap on the wrist for a major 
problem.

I agree that transparency is a good thing, but I disagree that 
increasing the bureaucracy does much besides increase the time necessary 
to get anything done.

Thanks,
Donnie
