S.C.V. WILL SURVIVE!
Back on July 26th CBS News, Eye on America, aired a segment on the SCV. I have contacted the Commander-in-Chief and received his permission to reprint his official comments on this airing, they are as follows. Editor

Many of you are aware of the special airing by Dan Rather and CBS
on the political climate of the SCV. We have known about it, and been
working on it since Monday, thinking it would be aired on Monday July
29th. It was discovered today that it would be moved to Friday, July
26th. My team of PR specialists laid out a plan to counter the airing
on the 29th. That plan is now academic in that CBS has moved the date.
With the CBS airing at 5:30 today I am not sure this is the last
we will hear. They may still have another segment to air on Monday
and we are prepared. No doubt the local press will seek us out at
Memphis possibly starting Monday throughout the end of the convention.
We must be careful what we say. We must also be aware that when we
return to our homes following convention the local press in your community
may have an equal interest. Again we must be careful with our comments.
