Re Cyrus's [8515]:

I have asked the OPE-L Advisory Committee to consider your
suggestion.  Others on the list can make their thoughts known
on the list or by sending off-list messages to Alfredo asfilho@aol.com
Allin cottrell@wfu.edu Fred fmoseley@mtholyoke.edu  and/or myself
glevy@pratt.edu .

In solidarity, Jerry
