  1. I wanted very much to attend Dr. Matthew's talk tonight, but unfortunately a previous commitment prevents me from being there.
  2. Well, I am sorry to hear it.
  3. And Akron is a great venue!
  4. We absolutely are going to Hamilton! It’s a great line-up!
  5. No Dublin, OH show?

    Well, he might escape from Elba, so I would suggest St. Helena.

    I am sorry but I’m appalled, saddened, disheartened and dismayed by this snarky response to a real problem. Hate me if you want. MMs deserve more. But hey, you got two likes so far and maybe more after this. Good on you. And if I am wrong and this isn’t snark but a legitimate expansion of the petition to include all volunteers to be subjected to background checks, then I applaud your efforts to insure that our MMs have the most reasonable assurance they will be instructed and supported in a safe environment.

    When 27th performed for the opening ceremonies in the 1980 Olympics, the solution to valves freezing was antifreeze.

    Perhaps the petition will fall on deaf ears at DCI’s corporate offices. Perhaps the member corps will decide that each corps should have its own criteria as to who is a risky staff or admin member. That would be a shame. I believe there should be a universal policy to insure membership safety. As the OP has repeatedly stated, this is not directed at one corps, nor should it be. All corps need to have a clear and uniform policy to prevent their MMs from having to endure sexual harassment, or worse, from staff and admin. Why is that too much to ask? I believe this petition could start the conversation to achieve this end. Please don’t parse my intent to hop down frivolous bunny trails leading to oblivion. I want to understand why this goal is objectionable.

    Very curious here ... does anyone doubt this is a real problem?
  13. Sign the Petition

    I see the petition is up to 906 signatures. I signed it when it was in the 20s. I wasn’t paying strict attention but I am going say I was number 27.
