Sorry, Rita, that no one has acknowledged receipt of your note.
You are right, our group has had no activities since July 14/15, so not to worry.
You are right too that I have been so busy, in fact so busy that many of my deadlines have not been met and I keep postponing some matters, writings and projects.
More than two weeks ago, I've finished editing an interview with Dr. Faleh Al-Khayat on IRAQ's Marshes, but till yesterday we've been trying to correct some glitches that happened when posting it on our Institute's website. We're still working on it and hopefully today or tomorrow, it will be ready for viewing.
The raeson I mention the interview here is because more than half of it addresses the Marshes and the project of drying the Marshes from a historic perspective covering aspects in the 70s with a brief mention of the 50s.
It will be very informative to those who knew nothing about the matter or have heard about it only from the USA/European mainstream media.

I am aware that you, Wafaa', have been extremely busy in the summer, so I hope September will be less hectic and we begin again this fall with more on Iraq's history.
This is not meant to pressure you, Wafaa'.
Best autumn wishes to you and everyone in this group,
