Dream, September 7, 2011 Margaret Dumont controls the board


Welcoming a woman to a board of directors. She has a Margaret Dumont figure and when the board president gives her a hug, all can tell she does not like it. The rest of us are careful only to shake her hand and then only for as long as she will have it. One she is welcomed, she instantly moves to the most commanding seat at the table and virtually chairs the meeting, though it is her first. There is a brown kraft envelope of unfinished business from years ago. Only she wants to discuss it. The table is set up in the center of an indoor hockey arena sans ice. There is cordon of velvet rope dividing the meeting space from the rest of the open space.
