Esperanza has posted before, Chuck, and you can find plenty of
information about her on-line. I assume she made a mistake posting,
and e-mailed her yahoo account to let her know it didn't get to the
person she intended, since she can't see what she posted to
Frameworks herself. And trying to be on-line in that part of Africa
is a challenge. I offered her what little help I could and hope she
finds the help she needs. She knows about the consulate, I'm sure.
That she is managing to reply to Frameworks shows an odd sense of
priorities, but sometimes trying to keep things normal is important.
I doubt anyone would target Frameworks as a money-making scheme.
