Real-time updates

Your editorial is incorrect about the 20-minute cable TV delay during last year’s lottery. As one of the two people running the broadcast, I can assure you that it was up to the minute in its accuracy. We used Nextel radios to keep in touch with officials in J Street, who constantly gave us updated numbers for the broadcast. The housing selection last year had problems, but a 20-minute delay on the cable broadcast was not one of them.
