A call for comments by March 14 on the continued use of SW by the VOA and other BBG-run outlets.

IMO SW is the only medium that crosses borders without gatekeepers, and should be retained. But I also believe that the BBG should collapse all the "specialized voices" into one more robust VOA. We don't need the separate administrative units; a centralized planning and control would be more efficient.

Yes. Now, they would listen? Not sure. :/
