a quick post for those of you who have been asking about what has been going on with my dad since his very irreverent sacking back in March. thefollowing is an excerpt of an email i received from him today and talks about hisongoing efforts to bring to light corruption in Utah government.

those of you unfamiliar with the story will find information in several of the posts housed in March's archives, and especially this one, thesack.

Finally, you may be interested to know that I will be on KCPW tomorrow (Friday, 16 Sept) morning. Common Cause of Utah, a group that promotes open and accountable government, has invited me to speak at a public meeting at the Salt Lake Main Library next week about the barriers to independent representation for residential utility customers in Utah, and what citizens may be able to do about them. KCPW has invited a representative of Common Cause and me to explain on their Midday Metro programme at 10:20am what the meeting will be about. You can find out about KCPW, and access streaming audio of the programme, at http://www.kcpw.org/. (From about 10:00pm to 5:00am Mountain Time, KCPW broadcasts the BBC World Service, so its a great way to hear Beeb quality news and get the hourly Greenwich Time Signal, too.) I see that KCPW also offers podcasts of its Midday Metro broadcasts, amongst other local programming. Those of us who live in the Salt Lake Valley can listen live on 88.3 or 105.3 FM.

enjoy listening, and let me know what you think.

this is what it feels like to be back on Western soil after spending seven months in the Orient.
