Great, here is a short pod cast on my class
it is on the 24th in the morning. Stop by if you happen to be the only one to show up. We could just skip and go to the Bar. It will be a hell of a week. My court date is the 22and at the high court.

Thanks for your interest in helping our efforts.
We need immediate assistance in two areas: filling state and regional coordinator positions for Colorado and raising money for expenses through the sale of t-shirts. T-shirts can be bought individually or in quantity on our site:
I have also attached our informational letter to this note, after you have had a chance to review it, perhaps we can find a time to speak about how you or someone you may know can help us?
Thanks again for your interest, I look forward to your response.
Have a great Thanksgiving.
