Hmm... it takes some people years to be ready.  Unfortunately, for them, 
ready happens in its own time, and can't be rushed to any visible 
effect.  Fortunately, those same folks tend to stick around equally long, 
and often see generations of others come and go.

So don't get too discouraged over it.  OTOH, having some of those faster 
evolving generations to help in the mean time helps with the load, and 
unfortunately as you said, that hasn't happened here either.
