Hi Jim & List,

I just had a poet ask not to be included in any broadcast of our
Superior Poetry Cafe that just recorded Thursday night. I simply edited
that reading out of the video. We are just beginning to make video
recordings & it is *brand new* to us. We had a release as part of our
sign up sheet & she did sing in, so I guess if I make a mistake I am
covered... but I don't want to go there, so that poet is "on the cutting
room floor" so to speak.

If any of our major presenters object & don't sign, we will just not
turn the camera on.
