>I noticed that Sabrina commented that she had a problem at the last meeting expressing her ideas because she was continualy being interrupted. I too, had that same problem to a small extent at the discussion that I attended with the group a while back. I like the idea of passing a "talking stick" or something similar. That way the person can express his/her thoughts (for a reasonable time) and then pass to the next person. Any thoughts?
