8. Lots of "Chiefs" There Oct 22, 2003, 14:59  Kenn Hoekstra 
I'll be interested to see how their power structure works out... Looks like they've got tons of "executive officers" and "management" there... I wonder how clearly they've defined their duties so they're not stepping on each other's toes? Could make for some interesting power struggles...
