Here is my attempt.  Which brings up another question.  How do we want to 
work the edits?  Do you want me to go back in and do the changes like 
this, or should I wait until we hear from all the editors, and we hash it 
out?  ::smile::

Hi Cherie!

OK. That is fine about the fingerspelling...whatever is correct...;-))

Here is a screen capture of the old title we did...this is from the 
SignBank Document can see I made it in color because I 
was preparing the document for the Dr. Seuss Foundation request...and 
of course it is not based on the video...but it shows the sign for 
QUOTE in the front of the title...and it includes the fingerspelling ;-)

I will try to write those facial expressions myself later today...I 
need to go to the post office to ship something important and then I 
will be back at my desk ;-))

Thanks for this wonderful work...

Val ;-)
