Oh, that would be so cool!  I'd love to come... I'll keep putting money into my SW fund, then, and hopefully the next time something comes up I'll be in a better position financially to be there...

I am trying to stay in touch with Gallaudet as there may be hope for a SW course next year some time.  I talked to the professor in charge of such programs over lunch while I was taking an ASL III class and they are seriously looking at it for 2009/2010, things take time.My strong hope is that IF this moves forward from Gallaudet, that many of those on this list will think about coming down for whatever launch they have of the class, to strongly show solidarity.If I hear anything sooner, I will let all of you know.Charles ButlerKimberley Shaw <skifoot at> wrote:
