Hey, Butch, there are part-15 organized people on the ground in Louisana right now, and we're funnelling support to them as we speak. We're supporting people who, just like Mac, are attempting to do the same thing Mac's doing.
WISPA's support of Mac is a great example of kindness and generosity on the part of folks who could easily make the case they need thier means for themselves. Thank you ALL for your generosity. This isn't a case of either/or, or a failed effort. Part-15 launched several things at once, and we learned very quickly the ugly reality of dealing with government agencies and beaurocratic organizations. There's going to be some lessons to be drawn and clearly described later, after hindsight makes this all more clear and easily understood. In the meantime, everyone's support is going to where its needed, and the lives you change are the reward only Heaven knows.
