This was a most interesting program.

I was very upset when KQED Forum presented 1 program about the name change/voter rights issue--

The case was made by management on the program that decisionmaking at the station would be streamlined by dropping member elections. Facilitating speed of decisionmaking-- isn't that the classic argument against democracy-- and for dictatorship?

Thank you for posting news about this meeting at Indybay.

Also, the quality of this website is excellent.
