I never could get the Blind Ambition video to play.  I'll have to try it
again from the main community correspondent page and see whether they have
in fact removed it.  If so I'll have to contact the station.  We got along
real well with the reporter and consider him a friend now, so maybe he can
help us get a copy if he's not in Iraq now.  That assignment was coming up
shortly after we met.  

Thanks a million and I'll let you know what I find out.  

How did you play the August videos?  

If anyone wants to see this and I can get it back, please let me know

I could not do anything on that KMPH flash page. Clicking on blind ambition
button with Jaws does not do nothing as usual here. And some flash is known
to do this sort of thing. I also noted here with Jaws that Jaws saw no links
on that flash page.
I looked at the source code for clues but I found none.

I did a site search within KMPH with blind ambitioin and I find nothing here
for it. Do you think they removed the video?

I did find the August videos though and the player works for me.

The link is:


I could play these 3 or 4 videos.
