If anyone has an issue with my posting this, please reply only to me:
mpwr@u.washington.edu

let's not torch innocent people.



For the women on the list.  This call for papers is neither spam, nor sent
to elicit monies.  I send it as I think the importance of poverty and
homelessness may be addressed and disseminated in this publication, to the
benefit of other homeless, and previously homeless.=20

and I know we have some damned fine female writers on hpn.  Pat Myers
