One Response to “About”

  1. Here’s a bunch of links I gathered for my friend. We’re working on IDing some of this stuff, as you are. But as you have the site up already (and its GREAT and important) I thought I’d pass this info along to you. There’s some stuff that I IDed within this message, and made clear if you look at all the links. THANK YOU and please get back to me on this if you have a minute.
