Greetings.  Thanks for being a friend, can't quite figure out why what with you at UCLA and me trying to help Natives at Dine' College Navajo Nation.  I taught back when at Cal Berkeley and reasoned I'm needed more here.  Don't laugh but I've worked with the Zuni, Hopi and Navajo for years and their involvement with reality fits into astrophysics.

You know Sumner Starrfield Astronomy ASU? Went to High School together.  Bill
