Jim Dingeman's response:
 Given the squabbling over the timing and the date the practical consequence is that some people will not be able to attend.  After all, their lives are not completely dominated by this soap opera.

As I understand there was to be time allocated for the WBAI CAB to report on what they have been gathering on the situation…hmm..I wonder where that went?

Finally, sorry…but a half hour is simply not enough time to have people come and deices this issue.

that was clearly deliberately done and at this time the idea that the collective insights of the members of the LSB is enough to answer the many thousands of listeners who have yet to deal with this is to me simply pathetic and deliberately designed to stifle the full of expression of people who actually pay to hear the air…80% of the money comes from the public….their opinion is objectified and stereotyped in a design like this.


We have to agree.
