My question for the telephone forum

I received an email from the UUA yesterday announcing a telephone forum with the candidates for UUA President.
"On Friday, April 17, at 3:00 PM (EDT), the Unitarian UniversalistAssociation will host a one-hour telephone forum with the two candidatesfor UUA president, Rev. Dr. Laurel Hallman and Rev. Peter Morales. The forum will originate from UUA headquarters in Boston and will bemoderated by UUA Secretary Paul Rickter.

Those wishing to ask questions of the candidates are invited to submitthem by emailing no later than Thursday, April 16,9:00 PM (EDT).

Those who wish to listen to the conversation are invited to call1-213-286-1201. When connected, please enter the following access code:117-113-425.For technical difficulties during the actual conference call, pleaseemail ."

My question is this: I notice that the time and day of the forum guarantee that whatever time zone one lives in anywhere in the continental US, it will occur during the workday. Do you assume that everyone interested in, let alone voting in this election is retired, or has an employer willing to let them place an hour-long long distance phone call on company time?

Why isn't this being broadcast over the net instead?

And saved for download later too?

I would agree that broadcasting this over the net would be the best results. This is the 20th century and all, nice post.
