thanks warren for contacting me, I'd rather not have
you guys return the pack but I just need to know if
you are committed to producing for FSRN, if you are
not, than it would be better to send it back to us so
that we can locate another group that is willing. I
am not an editor therefore I can not tell you what
stories you should do and say that they will be
accepted. You must pitch your stories to FSRN. I'm
sure that there is tons of local, regional, and state
news that is happening in Georgia. What are people's
priorities, what the hell is happening to Georgians?
Email me some story ideas and I will help you flesh
them out to send to the FSRN editorial team. Also, we
can offer certain support, we can offer a FSRN
training weekend or day where FSRN reporters come to
Atlanta to train you all. The problem is that it may
take a month or two to make that happen. Please
listen to FSRN stories and get an understanding of how
people report their stories. Of course news is timely
so that is also a factor...well this is all for now
but please write me back as soon as possible. thank

"Mr. Gandhi, what do you think about western civilization?"
"I think it would be a good idea."
--Mahatma Gandhi to a journalist
A quote from a problematic dead old white man (yes this is an oxymoron), Benjamin Franklin, that still holds true: "People who surrender their liberties to secure their freedom will end up with neither liberty nor freedom."
