I can just HEAR these kids rollicking around!! As I hear my own students at their playful best, in my mind, I connect the continents, and rejoice!! I am thankful that I have a connection to people who know how to Make Things Happen!!!!

Watching your posts daily, or as they come in. Re-reading them many times, to understand the details. Don't know if you are aware that I (Carol) grew up in the oil fields of Arkansas. What a complicated process. When I was growing up, southwest Arkansas was said to be in the Anadarko Basin, but the maps are marked up differently now, I see. At any rate, it is a very complicated process, this oil business, replete with endless opportunities for disaster. You are engaged in the opposite endeavor of our then-situation. Decades of pumping salt water from the wells out onto the open earth had made of the fields desert moonscapes. While we were in high school, the "oil men" were required to drive 35 miles (each way) to El Dorado, Arkansas, every Monday night, for training on how to handle the salt water, and reclaim the land. As the long process of renewal began, Mother Nature stepped in and took possession of her soil. The fields are now green and lush, and even trees grow where once only sprouted derricks. Work, now, as you will. But first, take care of the human ecology - - yourselves. Do not rush. Take care of details. Live to work again and again. You are in our hearts, our thoughts, and our prayers. We are so very proud of each and all of you. Inge & Carol

I believe in anything Dr. Pournelle does. She is a scholar of broad experience and education. She is a scientist, a poet, an original thinker of depth and practicality. We owe an unimaginable debt to our sisters and brothers in Iraq. Dr. Pournelle and her associates, there and here, are willing to do the work. I encourage everyone with any spare money at all, to help fund this so-important project. The earth itself will thank you. Carol Cantrell, Attorney, Durham, North Carolina
