  1. Eric,
    I wasn’t sure how else to contact you or the other two authors–I am proposing a panel on Environments of Waste for the 2012 SLSA conference and thought one of you may be interested or know someone who may be. I can forward on the proposal if interested.

    Thank you all for the great posts!
