Let me second our host's post of yesterday by suggesting that we all write to WJXT (the station co-sponsoring the next debate) and asking that they rescind their own "anti-fan" rule:
I wrote to the Administration email as follows:
I see that in the upcoming debate between Charlie Crist and Rick Scott, a
rule has been implemented forbidding fans. This is absurd and
unnecessary and should be rescinded. A small fan will in no way
interfere with the broadcast.
And indeed it won't. Organizers of the last debate claimed that fans caused a "hum" during the broadcast. Well, I sure didn't hear one in the last two debates, and Crist had his fan on both times. So tell them to cut the bull and let Crist have his fan!
