  1. I strongly sopuprt Ms. Simeone in this matter. I stopped sopuprting NPR stations in my area over the Juan Williams incident. More recently, I went back to sopuprting a Washington DC station after they had Juan Williams as a guest on the Diane Rehm Show, which they originate. Fair doesn’t seem to matter these days, but level playing field does, to me What’s good for Scott Simon, Ms. Roberts, and the rest of the NPR names , ought to be good enough for Ms. Simeone, and she’s not even an NPR employee. I don’t see where Opera and Occupy Washington are in the same arena. For that matter, if Juan Williams can appear on Diane Rehm’s news commentary show, then Lisa Simeone can appear your opera commentary show. Good luck on your decision.
