Just feelings . . . nothing more than feelings. You should note that Juan is careful to always spout only accepted opinions and ideas. But that is not good enough. Sometimes he has funny feelings that are not totally in line with his beliefs. But now he knows that he has to keep a closer watch on what he says. You might say NPR has engineered a very public move to have a chilling effect on Juan's freedom of expression. The PolitBuro is very much alive, on the taxpayer's dime.
