Note About News Coverage This Week

I’ve been offline more than on for the last few days dealing with a family emergency — turns out George Washington University Hospital has great staff but no easy internet access and Cingular is almost unusable there. Unfortunately, the unexpected crisis has had the worst outcome and I will be spending most of my time and energy this week in DC focusing on family. Please help us out and copy anything urgent in the way of news that you would send me to Rafat and please keep the non-time-sensitive pitches down since he’s carrying a heavier load than usual. I’ll respond to email as I have time and access. Thank you.
