Thank you KPBS, David Fresina and all his associates. I did not live in San Diego in 1978 but currently live in the area where all the lives were lost. I drive past Dwight and Nile twice a day and since learning about the site a couple of years back find myself overcome with deep reverance when i pass the spot. It is so important for all those involved and affected to have this type of forum to release. I only wish there had been more of a warning that it was going to air - I almost missed it and didnt have time to call people who I know whould have wanted to watch.
