Hello NFB Friends,
Over the past Ten days or so, I have had Google Alerts set to blindness, 
which has provided me with a half dozen or so opportunities to speak out 
against the movie.  Today, there was an interview with the film's 
director Fernando Meirelles in which he made some rather nasty and 
erronious statements about NFB.  I went to comment on it and was 
delighted to find that Chris Danielsen, NFB's PR specialist had beaten 
me to it!  Yes, I added my voice to his.  If you'd like to check it out,
