Just as I am writing this note to you, Kathy is reading Judy from UPitt TWiV 437 letter and Judy’s comment, “…what a great addition to the episode- a summary of an in depth paper and talking points in case you missed anything…” That is exactly what I was wishing for, an after the discussion summary and highlights.
Will you? Please, please, please.
