Here's your answer. If all the staff are locked out I can't imagine that
they'd make exception to one program. But it looks like they don't have a
front door just now...!

>This morning's Press Democrat (Santa Rosa, CA) has a front-page article

>until this calms down.'"
>Huh? What fresh lie is this? Since the door is locked and the staff do

>security guards) let them in, they are locked out (so glad I took that

>Near the end is this fascinating bit, with information from the
>endlessly creative Elan Fabbri: "Station critics picketed Pacifica and
>KPFA and held the mass rally outside the buildings Wednesday. Fabbri
>said crowds broke down the station's door, and Pacifica employees fled
>to a location she said she did not feel safe disclosing."
>Does anyone have photos of the broken-down door? Has it been replaced or
>repaired? I've watched television reports and have seen and heard
>nothing about the alledgedly broken-down door. Perhaps the hired guns
>carry spare doors with them in preparation for this sort of emergency...
