Linda Woods asked me to share this New York Times article with the lists.
Rather than posting it to everyone (a long article) I thought it would be
easier for you to request it and I will forward it. I don't have the
origianl Times article but will forward what Linda sent to me. (email off
list Jdecker@woh.rr.com - PLEASE do not reply to the list as I am the only
one offering to forward it)
Here is how it starts out (some of you may subscribe and have read it)

This is the country you have been longing for."
