I'd like to get this out Weds. morning (Aug. 9).  I am missing a few titles 
and I have not included HP, based on the earlier email I'd seen requesting 
that they not be included in external communication for the time 
being.  Once again, I have intentionally kept this rather news free.

I will not include your company/spokesperson in the "WHO" listing until I 
get an affirmative OK from the organization representative on this alias, 
so please let us know if the spelling/wording of your spokespersons (or 
your name if you are the spokesperson) is OK.

Thanks, Barb 781-466-8282
