I wholeheartedly agree, which is why I'm very concerned that, as far as I 
know, no one person has been hired to serve as the liasion between the Sun 
and WJUL (i.e. presumably a professional GM for WJUL) and that position is 
key to make sure a balance is struck. Supposedly four candidates have been 
selected from the flood of applications, and possibly an offer has been 
made, but if the person's been hired; he/she is keeping a VERY low profile 
so far...

They certainly do, although so far all their public comments on the issue 
have been shallow, selfish and unwilling to compromise.  I have no idea 
what they're saying in private; they refuse to talk to anyone about it (or 
so I'm told, both to my face and by others).
