Hi Schroeder--

I hope you are doing well. I hope that you will post your experiences, summaries, and thoughts about any of these lectures if you attend them.

I appreciate your posts--you know I am in Birmingham, so I basically get all my info from nola.com, CNN, and you :)

Make it a great day-
tara

Nice to hear from you Tara.

And you? Have you no thoughts on what's happening that you'd like to post on Morphemes and Morsels?

Thanks for the list. Too much competition among events. Do you know where the people marching to N.O. from Mobile are going to meet Cindy Sheehan here? If they're actually walking, I figure I've got a couple of days....
