So blimp rides at the point? ;)
But, I think an "outside perspective" on a corporate Board is a good thing...so long as you are willing to hear the criticism as well as the praise. I'm not sure Dick appreciates the former.
BTW, there are many people who are on multiple Boards of Directors of different companies.
