On April Fool's Day, it was used again by alleged board chair Margy Wilkinson in a letter to Executive Director Summer Reese which informed Reese of her much-rumored termination by the board. A copy of the fake letterhead can be found here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/9y4yf2vk80q2o9f/Fake+Letterhead.pdf
For a comic interlude, 1925 MLK Way was serenaded on April 1st by a demented cheerleader for the board majority. His odd performance was captured on video until irritated neighbors asked for the disturbance to stop. here: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10152343815209328

Someone with some influence can suggest or request that KPFK in LA have a TOWN HALL MEETING soon with L A listeners contacted to come together - not to shout or insult or name-call but to SHARE INFORMATION without any pressures, pushes, fighting or animosity. Is this possible ? Should be.
To have one simultaneously or near same date as the KPFA one called here : KPFA Town Hall announced as at :
South Berkeley Senior Center Sunday April 6, 4 to 6 PM @ the South Berkeley Senior Center 2939 Ellis Street, Berkeley 94703, (near Ashby BART)
[see more here : http://www.facebook.com/UnitedForCommunityRadio
and both should have a couple or 3-5 good neutral Note-takers to share actual factual statements and blow-by-word descriptions of what goes on too. [maybe video and audio-recordings but they sometimes become difficult to re-hear], Text can then be available both in full versions or maybe edited versions for everyone else, on line ?
To finally have something like real Visibility ? And Accountability ? and the games, alliances, and the snide shots reduced or eliminated too ? huh ? maybe ? why not ?
Is some coming-together-to-share-learn possible now ?
….even in this contentious adversarial environment that has exploded with ED Reese’s hiring, firing, denied-legalities, et al ????
Why not? Are we really that hate filled and angry and unable to speak decently civilly to those who share our listening habits – even when they like programs and views we do not ?
Or are we in L A so intolerant and pushy and demanding that we only want what we want exclusively, selfishly and remain alienated-in-separate-cubicles only ? huh ?
why stay in that the low scored box ? too scared ? too Right [and anyone 'else' must be Wrong, only 2 choices allowed ? who said so ? ]
Who does not belong if they pay membership dues to KPFK and Pacifica ? And what is more amazing, right now KPFK is on air with its same old repetitious programs as if...as if...huh ?...nothing else of importance were happening and needed to be known, aired, said aloud. Gagging anyone ?
