Hey Kim
Your research article is making the rounds! I was in RI last week and some people from MA proudly gave me a copy, and Bodhi posted it with "this gives me encouragement" on his FB page today-- great press for a great job!

I'm good. How's the weather there in Wisconsin? It got a lot cooler here.
I finally met Greg Hurd at Bancroft and got a tour of the school, when I went to the store to buy more gel last week. Well enjoy yourself. Don't hesitate to email or call anytime. I'm proud of you for pursuing this! ttyl, Leo
