  1. Katherine Forbes-Smith new appointment was only to benefit her family attending college in Atlanta. Trust me!

  2. No, Ms Smith did not pose for an official photograph dragging slippers. I must be seeing things. All the best to Mr. Cooper in his retirement years and to Mrs. Smith on her appointment. She should have softened up a bit over the past two years.

  3. From what I have seen of Kaye Smith she will make a terrific Consul in Atlanta.fred Cooper is an old faithful and should be commeneded for his stint in GB.I wish all the paerties well in their new endeavors.It is good that Fred got the opportunity to retire at 65 yrs as that willnot happen again under HAI.The question is this though will NIB payments be lowered for retired persons?
