Dear Brian,

I am confident that FIRE knows that NEIU proposed alternative methods for the College Republicans to communicate its message.  John Tait and I met again yesterday about a couple of matters, one of which was what I was able to learn further on bake sales as political commentaries.  He is aware that the club can hold its bake sale without pre-conditions.  We likewise discussed the value of informing potential customers of the primary intent of the activity so that they can make an informed decision as to whether or not to taking part.  I think I can state for John that we are both happy with the outcome of our conversation.

Please also know that I had a similar chat with an officer of the FMLA.
