And now another type of poetry.
As many of you know, the University of Washington and its radio station KUOW,want to purchase KPLU from Pacific Lutheran University (PLU). In essence, kill an extraordinary popular and successful public radio station. Today, the chair of the KPLU advisory council, Stephan Tan, released a compelling letter that expresses the opposition of the KPLU Council to the sale. Furthermore, he shows that many of the "facts" supporting the sale are incorrect.
The letter is found below (you can click on each page to enlarge if you like).
This is the time to email the PLU President, Thomas Krise (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the UW Regents (email@example.com), and KUOW (firstname.lastname@example.org) about your opinions about this takeover attempt. The loss of KPLU can be prevented and it is clear that given a few months, KPLU could raise enough funds from listeners to "buy" its independence from PLU. Even better PLU should reconsider the idea of the sale.
