I am sure I will not be the first to write you about this but I just got a
grotesque 'get rich quick scheme' advertisment from the population health
forum mail list. The sender name on it was Luc Simard--the name in the body
of the letter was Ellie Gilbert.
I am enjoying receiving this newsletter and though, as a distane student, I
will rarely have time to assist with projects, I enjoy the heart, passion
and focus of keeping the effects of the global economic situation in the
forefront of our minds as we care for people. I especially liked your
writings on John Rawls recently. He sounds extraordinary; and that it just
where it begins. I will moarn that which I only came to know after death.
(Actually I have the same relasionhip with Jimi Hendrix--I never heard his
music till after he died.)
Anyway would love to hear that there is some assurance that this list won't
be used again for ads and other pitches other wise I 'll deleting and
fuming. Thanks for any attention you can give this.
