I would certainly think that the contributions that Don Blanding made in
literature, poetry, art, theater, radio, etc. would warrant his
inclusion on the list. Other than e-mailing them with our
recommendations, does anyone have good ideas how to best bring this to
the Commission's attention? Tom, Cadia, Bev, Keith; you guys have been
the most active--Any thoughts.
