Keith,

Okay, I just agreed to do it. Now a favor to ask you. Can you check
with UEA to see if it will send an invoice to Lamont for payment of
all costs incurred by our meeting at UEA (housing, meeting room
charges, coffee/tea breaks, etc)? The person to contact about this at
Lamont is Moanna St. Clair (stclair@ldeo.columbia.edu). Having UEA
bill Lamont directly will relieve Richard and I from having to put the
charges on our credit cards, a real nuisance in terms of getting
reimbursed.
