Clark Howard mentions USAir Cockroaches

I heard that Clark Howard mentioned the USAir Cockroaches this week, and said he wasn't aware of any similar group that had formed to protest Delta's changes.

If you're not familiar with Clark Howard, he's a radio personality/consumer advocate/travel expert. He's the third most syndicated radio personality, only behind Rush Limbaugh and Dr. Laura.

Once we've organized our message, I think we should make him aware of us.

I searched his site, and found another time he referenced the Cockroaches:

Just for the record Mr Howard is behind Howard Stern as is the pompous self proclaimed bastion of morality, Dr. Laura, she of naked pics on the web fame.

Well it would be good to make him aware of the group. I would tell you that publicity is far more important than money. We are a very loose group and we have spent zero as a formal group. The gentleman who put up the web page hasn't asked for a nickle and I buy and distribute pins out of my pocket. so we were able to make our cause kown for virtually nothing and as a reward we get nothing from Flyer Talk like you guys did. Heck we mentioned Flyer Talk every interview. OH well let me know if i can help you guys.

In looking at Clark's site, I cannot find an email address to get to him. Maybe I missed it (tired, just gout home from a trip..gotta get those .5MQMs)

Am I missing something?

PineyBob, thanks for all of your help. Please let us know what we can do to help you and your cause.

I still contend that this is a global frequent flyer issue. What happens at DL or NW or UA etc. today, will spread like a California wild fire tomorrow>

We all need to keep up the pressure.

Perhaps since you are in ATL you could pressure for a joint interview with cockroaches and SaveOurSkymiles. Clark has a very wide reach and I have started to post on his board I suggest you do likewise.

E-mail me off line as to how we can coordinate and get this Clark appearance moving forward. He has quite a reach and it would be free publicity.
