What happened with that extension agent?  Is there anything that people on
this list can do to make sure that he is reinstated, should he wish to work
in that area again?  I think that some real grassroots power could be shown
here if the area received a flood of calls, emails, and attention demanding
that this person's First Amendment rights were observed (which is darn well
what it comes down to!)  Or was there something and I (sheepishly ask)
missed it?
