I’ve just now heard ConCarolina’s closing statement and an announcement regarding what happened to John and what they will do going forward. Listen for yourself right here: ConCarolinas Statement.
Ok, basically they admit they screwed up and stated that this crap will not happen again.
(I left out an “It’s About Damn Time” because the folks at ConCarolinas have been verbally thrashed enough over this issue and they should hear nothing but praise for this decision from everyone – left, center and right.)
