Dear Ed,

Re: Declined invitation to school meeting

I was interested to read the comments of Veritas. o­ne of the things that is brought up as a subject in management skills lessons (in the broadest sense now) is the single skill of "listening". 

During the course of this subject, you will learn that "listening" is o­ne of the first (if not the very first) sense we use when still in our mother's womb.

It is such a pity, therefore, that when we get older it is generally, the least used sense, especially when in a conversation or meeting.

Educationally yours,
