All business happens through email.

For years I have been saying that email is the transmission vehicle or conduit through which all business happens. Getting rid of the entire contents of the email system because of fear of the “smoking gun” message is like “throwing the baby out with the bath water”. Well I know now that indeed email is the vehicle through which ALL business happens. Take for example, the May 3 Wall Street Journal story entitled “Pope to Overhaul Legion of Christ”, a story about a Catholic organization with a “military-like culture, which led its members to maintain a code of secrecy in the face of sexual abuse committed by its late founder…” In the story, it states, “in an email (emphasis added)responding to an interview request, Luis Garza, the Legion’s No. 2 official, said ‘For the moment, we will have to wait a bit to have the context and full knowledge of everything.” Are You kidding me, everyone uses email for everything.
