We are growing so fast, and so many things are happening, that we're starting to have a log jam of things to report in these email messages. Media interviews are piling up, there are new RTBA Coalition members to report, and there is more and more legislation in Congress that requires immediate action. The result . . .
You may receive two emails from us today. The second one, if we can get to it, will be an urgent action item about new legislation designed, once again, to protect incumbents from serious competition. When you get this message, today or tomorrow, please pay attention to it, and forward it to everyone you know who cares about free and open elections. Meanwhile, there are three items to report in this message . . .
We are preparing a list of all those who made donations in memory of Harry Browne. If you would like to join the list you can do so here.
News of Harry's passing was mentioned Sunday on ABC's "This Week." The AP and UPI also carried the story. There were stories in "The Washington Post" and "The Washington Times." Some local TV stations carried the story, and there were numerous mentions all over the Internet. You can find a compilation of some of the mentions here.
We are also scheduling me for more-and-more interviews. Three of them are listed below and you can listen to all of them on the Internet. But we are running low on media contacts. Please help us expand our media list by researching shows in your area. Instructions and a form you can use for providing your local media contacts can be found here.
Here are the currently scheduled interviews you can listen to on the Internet:
