Re: “Soundbites: Mister Disaster

Here is a message I sent to Craig on March 2, 2017: (I never got a response)

Hi Craig,

I hope this finds you well. I am very sorry for the intensity of what you are going through.

I attended the town hall this evening and was beyond emotional with the Trans communities pain. The name you have chosen is offensive to them, period. I know you never meant any Ill intent and if anything you were being inclusive. The fact of the matter is a very large group as well as the Pride center are choosing to condemn and boycott your new establishment.

I know I have no right in asking this. But would you consider re naming the bar along with a letter stating you hear and understand the Trans community need to feel safe and was not aware of the impact the name had.

I think you are going to be very successful. I believe the choice of renaming the bar is an act of solidarity. It also shows we are human and can listen. We are all in this together and I want nothing but the best for you. Please think about it. It is a tough position but I do believe things have a way of bringing us all together. You have an opportunity to show Vermont how we as a community protect and stand by each other.

Much love and light,

Robert
