Pacifica's House of Cards...
This just in: Last Saturday, at KPFA's LSB meeting, Pacifica's Interim Executive Director, Summer Reese—the lady who came to town, laughed a lot, and revealed the true nature and urgency of WBAI's debt—told that station's Interim GM, Andrew Phillips, to pack up. As Phillips, a man who has the broadcasting experience Reimers so sorely lacks, put it, "Summer Reese told me I should be prepared to vacate my office next week."
When last I heard of this lady's activities, she was running around in Brooklyn, looking for a house suitable for WBAI as it's new home. How she was going to buy a building in New York without money, credit, and listeners is a mystery. So, to me, is the fact that she did not tell Berthold Reimers to vacate his office (the temporary one). These people live in a dream world, but I think their house of cards is coming down, and they can only blame themselves—but, of course, they won't.
