Hi Deke,

In 7 days I will have this issue "right there on my shelf", so if you dont
mind the wait -or if no one else emerges with help-, Ill be happy to do it.
I have used this quote before, and am curious to know what you are working
on (email suppressed).

May I invite you to read this
which I refer to Sharits' 'Statement'.

Very best,
