        Ummmm....having just discovered that a good number of my non-teaching/non
        social worker friends never pause to think about poverty or social justice
        issues (yes, this was a surprise)--I am happy so many of you care to keep up
        on issues. It saves me from moving over to shockleyland (although I'm sure
        it's very nice over there=).

        take care--v.

                  center to study health disparities among the nation's minority
