      Hi Rachel,

      Sorry I missed class last week; was shooting for my doc and couldn't reschedule it.

      Did you assign something due this week? Is spring break next week?

      I might be interested in the BBC thing. Do you have any more info. on it?

Good people involved on this ongoing work and a $500 p/term stipend. You must be recommended via me, so contact me if you're interested.
