Please excuse the cross-postings, I want to make sure everyone gets this.  A reporter (Nala Rogers) with Science magazine wanted to interview *me* about the CSBR funding issue, and I thought they would be better served talking to one of you.  I will also be unavailable today (Tuesday) to do so anyway, as I'll be working a retail job.  Much thanks.

Dear Dr. Eaton,

I'm a reporter at Science magazine, and I'm writing a news story about the funding hiatus for CSBR. I found your blog post on this topic very helpful (and then I got distracted reading the rest of your blog, and finally managed to bookmark it and get back to work). I'm trying to understand how the research and museum communities are reacting to the suspension of CSBR funding, and how the cut will impact research and collections. Would you be free to answer a few questions some time tomorrow?
