Open thread, and a micro news brief

Briefly: David Lynch teleconference with University of Montana Media Arts students is blogged by the campus newspaper; the paper characterized the event as a "lesson" in Transcendental Meditation... More news on David Sieveking’s film “David Wants to Fly” that's slowly making its way across the U.S. The film may have been the subject of an on-campus Q&A at MUM with Bobby Roth earlier this week... Onetime MIU student Jeff Peckman is running for mayor of Denver... TM promoters are again attempting to propagandize for the use of TM to treat PTSD among soldiers, this time in the Sri Lanka Guardian. They must be out of media outlets that will cover what they say, because this Guardian freely admits that it's a website that will run almost anything - see their disclaimer... Ramani Ayer, retired insurance executive and board member of both the David Lynch Foundation and MUM, joins the board of directors of XL Group, a global insurance firm... How many racehorses are named Maharishi?

I totally agree with the above comment.

Now written up on the front page, with various supporting TM movement sources. Just when you think they can't sink any lower... http://goo.gl/Adzmw

It's in 14 segments, I thought the videos were linked but I guess they aren't. Click on the account for access to all 14 segments.

Thanks for the pointer to that. I've posted a video response to part 5/14 but it looks like that as well as any comments, if they exist, haven't yet been approved by the channel owner. My response is a short excerpt of the David Wants to Fly film, where Roth says, and I quote, "Here's the thing I have to tell you... I'd like you to turn this off." To my eye Roth deliberately avoided the question about this part of the movie and appeared to be talking about something completely unrelated if it existed at all.
