I got the below e-mail about the potential Parker ban (it didn't pass!) from a reporter I've worked with a couple times. I think it's important for all of us to see this and act accordingly. Special kudos to Kay and RJ O'Conner, who headed up the Parker efforts.

P.S. (I've been offline for a week plus, so I'll get to the rest of e-mail as soon as possible.)

i think that is exactly right, makes perfect sense. no matter how upset we get, if we act like a bunch of loose cannons, and irrational, who would take us serious? that is why we should always be professional, to the point, and never threatening, imho

thanks for showing this btw. much appreciated.
