Subject: Re: OT: terrorism (was Re: A projec)t
Due to a bit of stupidity on my part I haven't been able to post to the
conlang list from my current email (I killed my Cornell email addie
without thinking); I should be back on with the new(er) address this
weekend. It's disconcerting to be able to read messages but not to
respond to the list, but perhaps good...
I am glad to see that you survived. I have not lost anyone personally but
my student-teacher colleagues are dealing with the trauma. Please pass on
my continued prayers to conlang, and (more privately) I hope that the
political alienoflammification passes quickly.
Yoon Ha Lee, deeply disturbed
The candle my sister and I left in Stanford's White Plaza was still going
strong when we left.
