Considering all the possible angles Don Buchanan could have chosen to report in "Alliance served up in Deli", his comments exhibit a lack of knowledge of the issues and misrepresent the intent of the gathering. The evening was planned as a fun spirited social forum to build awareness of a non-profit organization working diligently for the economic betterment of the territory.
The number of people he stated were "listening"(from his location within the venue) is inaccurate and an indirect affront to the purpose of the organization and the evening. To further characterize and imply my closing comments as a choice between between music and questions misses the obvious. The evening was simply an informal meet-and-greet networking opportunity, not a press conference. Don has got to be smarter than that, or he's in the wrong profession.
