I'm not saying we can't. If you really want to talk about funding, talk
about it here. If it starts getting out of hand, we can start a new
list. I do think, though, that if you have any direct experience in this,
or have a good (w/ emphasis on "good") contact, the best thing to do would
be to talk to Doug directly. As I said in a previous e-mail, we already
have several good people working on funding issues. The best thing that
we all can do is to continue what we're doing -- build the OHS.
