I said I didn't care if we got $200,000, $100,000, or $50,000 of the Reid money, or none, but that we needed to know now what, if anything, we had to spend. So wish me luck! 

I will be working on three lists over the next days 
1) possible Advisory Comm. members 
2) possible Lawyers Comm. members
3) contacts in the media, including radio + TV, for possible help in our visibility. 

The top top priority as I see it as of now is your administrative assistant so that the Center is really in business as [a] unit all its own. 

I plan to be in town each week Mondays through Wednesdays in case we need to meet. Incidentally my apt. (85th St.) is air-cooled in case we'd like to meet there for discussions with ice-tea, spiked or otherwise. My country number is 914-232-3466.

Love, 
Elly
