Subject: Re: Something different to share
I'm sorry this irritated you--and I apologize to everyone else on this listserv
well. You know, I knew this was a risk--However a number of you have some very
important work that you are doing which relies entirely on funding from outside
sources. Wouldn't it be nice not to have to worry about getting funding yearly?
This is where I was coming from. I have, howver, promised Valerie to run any
of my, shall we say, unusual posts past her first so as not to upset the troops.
Enough said. I'm off my soapbox. I wish you the best. Cheryl Zapien
