Hi Ruth,

I will pester them. The Public Broadcasting Service is usually better  
in that regard. I think that it was more about timing rather than  
bias in this case.

Whenever a Chicago station wants a speaker, they start with the usual  
cast of characters. The usual players don't have nuclear groups so  
couldn't provide anyone. By the time that they got around to IIT is  
was Tuesday.

On Tuesday, I was in D. C. at the University NERI meeting. I should  
learn not to turn off my phone in those meetings. Wow, was that an  
interesting meeting as an aside.

The TV people finally contacted me today so I started preparing and  
was just leaving for the studio when they called and cancelled saying  
that it was too late to get me on.

Maybe next time.
