Could Dr. Laura help?

Popular talk show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger, who has recently been on the SoCal regatta circuit, makes her living solving other people’s problems. Is it time for her sit down with Ernesto Bertarelli and Larry Ellison to help get the America’s Cup back on track? Does it concern anyone else that, as the New York Courts stated in their April 2, 2009 decision, how “it falls now to SNG (Societe Nautique De Geneve) and GGYC (Golden Gate Yacht Club) to work together”?

Hate is a strong word, but are these two clubs even extending reciprocal privileges to each other? The air has been eerily quiet… could it have been the calm before the storm? Perhaps, as a letter dated April 7th had been sent by GGYC (Ellison’s club) to SNG (Bertarelli’s club) to initiate their negotiations, and now on April 14th the Swiss club has posted a note on their website stating they would like to meet as well. Is it time to get Dr. Laura involved, or should these two gentlemen first become Facebook “friends” and see how that goes before trying to agree on the 33rd America’s Cup conditions.
