    Dearwho’s time has arrived. Sirs, I support your work. Daniel Abrahamson is a personal friend, and Ethan Nadelman is an acquaitance. Just yesterday, I wrote to the president of my University, SUNY Cortland, and put forth the idea of a whole day or two, to really explain to students and faculty as well, that this is an idea who’s time has arrived. love would to count on your support in the fall, and perhaps bring in some Fellows from LEAP, and/or other organizations.
    PS-We are within minutes of Cornell, Ithaca College, TC3, BCC, Syracuse University, and many schools in the area.
    Sincerely,
