Entitled, "WEAK!"

David

I am let down by your article. It falls short of reporting the emotion the
meeting was about on Friday. It does not grip me into believing Jane's
dismissal is an awful mistake and it ends on the corporate fascist Hitler &
Fishman rhetoric crap.

The board of trustees will see your article as popular opinion and use the
"that's just the way it is" attitude. You also did not mention the web site
http://www.liberationbrew.org which would help others see why and how they
can help to resolve this injustice.

Your "Anonymous and easily disproved rumors about higher-ups are
circulating." statement is a dig to those who gave you information and it
shows your hastiness to put your article into circulation. While I
appreciate your immediate response to Jane's plight, I thought your patience
to listen to the staff and volunteers indicated you would really investigate
this story.

Long after you've gone and written other stories, we will still be present
fighting to get Jane re-instated. I hope along the way you will update your
Free Time's readers.

I must second Karen's view. I am disappointed in the article.

I must agree with Karen. Mr. Morton's article started bad and left a very sour taste in my mouth. The "charges of racism and reverse-racism, perhaps hastily assembled." is in fact a full scale investigation that has resulted in each member of the medical staff meeting with an "outside" specialist hired by the free Clinic. This is not a rumor folks and the investigation continues to drag on. The other "anonymous and easily disproved rumors about higher-ups" involve serious questions of questionable hiring practices, improper relationships, salary concerns (if Marty is so concerned about the tight resources then why not cut his Mega salary (something like $100,000), intimidation of staff,.... These are serious concerns that must be addressed!!! Racism, reverse-racism, intimidation, sexism, homophobia.... is this what the Free Clinic means to you? Well, this has to stop. We have to address these issues and we can't allow this to continue!
