Hi Andy,

I think maybe you missed the existance of ALE Central (the oldest and best 
attended ALE meeting) which will meet Thursday, March 11.  You would be most 
welcome to come to that meeting.  We have a speaker scheduled, but we'd love 
for you to give, say, a 15 minute presentation on what you're up to.  I think 
it is important work and there would be lots of interest from our members.

We meet at 7:30 at the Emory University Law School.  Directions are 

I hope you can come.  Let me know and I'll put it on our announcement.

See you,
