From firstname.lastname@example.org Tue Mar 12 12:02:38 1996 Subject: Flaming on KFRC Did anyone else listen to KFRC this morning? I was witness to morning host Gary Bryan railing against the manhood of Miata drivers for the better part of an hour! Yes, he went on, sometimes rather vehemently, proclaiming that a real man shouldn't be seen behind the wheel of our beloved Eunos! Worse yet, this pissant invited callers to participate in identifying girl-cars and guy-cars. The guy-car ID's, as one might guess, tended toward the old American V-8 dinousaurs, while the girl-cars tended to be contemperary imports, with a strange emphasis on Swedish vehicles. All the while, between callers and songs, Bryan continued his diatribe against our car, calling us male owners, "incapable of bearing children", and a "disgrace". All humor aside, the fervor of his attack seemed rather unusual. Perhaps he was aced out on his way to work by a Miata driver exhibiting no more than a normal display of the car's agile handling in city traffic. Or perhaps his girlfriend ditched him for a Miata-driving stud at a bar last night. Whatever the case, methinks he doth protest too loudly! Please see to it that this news reaches the highest level of attention in the Miata community. I would like to see a report of this incident in the club magazine. A boycott of KFRC and its prime advertisers would also be in order. Perhaps a noontime rally by the local club chapter at the KFRC studios could be arranged. Whatever else, the message should be spread that the Miata is favored by rational, passionate folks of both genders who generally avoid trite and divisive stereotypical characterizations as those I was subjected to by Gary Bryan on KFRC, San Francisco, this morning.
From email@example.com Tue Mar 12 12:02:38 1996 Subject: Flaming on KFRC I called KFRC this morning to get an E-mail address so they could be properly flamed for the attack on the manhood of male Miata drivers by Gary Bryan, morning show host and all-around Neanderthal. The address is: firstname.lastname@example.org I would be interested in hearing from anyone else that heard this performance. All for now, Doug
