Prism is friendly
The article "Prism Schism" omits the other community-oriented activities that go on every week at the Prism: jam sessions, open mics, Festival of the Book, cultural fairs, and a children's radio show to name a few. Unfortunately, volunteers for such activities are difficult to come by, so Fred and Kenyon handle many of these situations short-handed or on their own.
Really all this boils down to one thing, Fred and Kenyon aren't running the Prism for personal gain. They're there to selflessly help the community. As for the comment in the article that the Prism needs to get back to a point where people feel it's a friendly place, I can't think of a friendlier place in the country.
