Ken, kudos to you for bringing the community together to discuss an important topic like this. I hope to see more events like this in the future.

It is clear that the shootings in Cupertino by a community activist reflect the lack of civility in this area so I hope Pres. Obama speaks on this topic and gives us advice on his next fund raising trip through the Silicon Valley. Perhaps the roundtable can request his help.
