It sounds to me as if Ian would be just the person to pen the letter to 
IHOP. (His credentials are excellent!) In my times of travel, I've found 
the pancakes at IHOP to be good for breakfast, but the service deserves 
a -10 out of 0 to10. Incidentally, that isn't why I don't join the 
members at the after meeting dinners. I live in the totally opposite 
direction - south.
