They said they'd tried one approach and it was unsuccessful.
But they had not tried several other, equally obvious, approaches which might be successful.
They said they'd contacted one group that might provide a solution although that group was undependable.
But they had not contacted four to five other groups that could provide serious assistance.
The question in the back of my mind centered on whether they genuinely wanted to find a solution or instead simply desired to craft an eloquent excuse for doing next to nothing.
