Hello Tim!

This is a great article...thanks for the link, Tim...and Judy and  
James Shepard Kegl are both on the SignWriting List, as you know...

Not only is SignWriting mentioned in the article, but Yuri is  
standing in front of a blackboard that has SignWriting symbols on  
it...see the first photos at the top of the article...so SignWriting  
is there, thanks to Judy and James and Yuri!

The story Babar, which they mention in the photo captions, is one of  
the many stories written in SignWriting at the school...
