From a stranger in a very strange land, a question posed from the home of former Gov. Jesse Ventura, current Gov. Tim Pawlenty, soon-to-be U.S. Senator Al Franken, former Congressional candidate Wendy Wilde and former State House Rep. Mike Osskopp, all radio personalities who quit when they were campaigning:

Where a candidate for federal office buys time on a cable channel, does the “Equal Time” provision kick in?

Here’s David Oxenford’s post last October on this very question:

Steven Colbert. Equal Opportunities and the Candidate Host

And regarding that question posed, from Oxenford himself:

Sounds to me that, in your situation, if the candidate bought the time,
it’s just like the Hillary Clinton hour on the Hallmark Channel – other
candidates probably have equal opportunity rights – but they just have
the opportunity to buy an equal amount of time on the cable channel.
They don’t get free time unless the first candidate got her time for
free.

Yup, that’s just what I was thinking…

If anyone wants to check that out with the expert himself, he’s got 25 years of FCC and campaign experience, BROADCAST LAW, get the real poop, CLICK HERE FOR A PROFESSIONAL OPINION!

Most of the Excelsior Mesaba coal gasification project Surrebuttal Testimony is here, but some is just too big to upload. Dealing with Filezilla is like doing quadratic equations, it’s in that grey spongy mush area of my brain, and nothing my teenage computer geek says will convince me otherwise, most likely because I cannot understand what he’s saying (though his cogent thought in other areas gives me hope for this screwed up world), so I’ll limp along uploading what I can until I can bear to try that damn Filezilla again. Now remember, I’m the one who failed Intro Algebra 0999 at the U not once, but THREE TIMES, I don’t give up easily, and lo and behold, decades later I learned it was Northfield’s own Chris Ennis who failed me two of those times, but then, he didn’t know I knew about reactive power and I didn’t know he taught electrical engineering… the things we don’t know about people… but he makes a very good campaign Treasurer, even if he is fluent in algebra.

So enough digression, enough whining, on to posting this Excelsior Mesaba coal gasification project Surrebuttal Testimony:
