+1 ed. No one has bothered to even consider the question. I was somewhat dismayed that our in-house economist did not slay the idea when it was being discussed somewhere around here http://www.attackpoint.org/discussionthread.jsp/me...
. At that point, I realized the battle may have been lost.
The whole H1B (or some other) visa thing. I've maintained forever that it is worth pursuing and is not that hard. Incidentally, with a small investment of $4K-$5K, we secured an H1B visa for one of our employees this year. It isn't that hard. But, to orienteers, it seems like the Manhattan Project. They all seem like experts on it. My attitude has always been where there is a will, there is a way.
Anyway, as I have no will for any of this stuff, I'm slinking back to the black lodge, where Eddie's awaiting me. No orienteering politics there.
