Campbell's statement about how long the financial review may take ("realistically" speaking!) makes it clear that there is only inertia on the side of management. The plan was to prolong the lockout, at the expense of the musicians and the public's good will, until Orchestra (!) Hall could be opened this fall by comedian Bill Cosby.

Given that ticket and contribution revenue is WAY down, and at this time of year they would ordinarily be seeing an influx of renewals for the next season, it only makes sense to get the musicians back playing. Any further erosion of trust with the audience would be even more costly. Unless the MOA is counting on the bankruptcy that would supposedly ensue should their lame and fact--challenged telephone calls not produce results. Hmmm.... oh well, Legacy Committee hearing on Tuesday!
