The Brooklyn Reporter debate at Xaverian H.S. is scheduled for August 15th --- THAT'S A SIGNIFICANT HOLY DAY IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
So far, some City Council candidates, at least one Catholic clergyman and some other interested folks seem to have weighed in on this, one way or the other
First, there were the arguments back and forth on Facebook --- and then came some recriminations. [However, I've been able only to track down a fraction of the stuff that was described to me as comprising the whole debate on this issue; so I can't fully report on all that's been said by all of the participants.....]
Nonetheless, based on what I have seen, our position here on this blog is simple --- this is a screw up AND the date must be changed.
It's that simple.
