    I will send a message to Ms, Lisa Hase-Jackson by snail mail but perhaps you may forward this to her. Precisely at the time you were publishing my poem “The Mystery House,” my computer was no longer functioning, but I see it on a library computer — Thank you very much. As soon as my computer is fixed I will broadcast this news to my somewhat extensive mailing list and elsewhere. I just noticed that I may hear Ms. Hase-Jackson read a poem by a favorite, Sharon Olds, and now I will admit that I am 80 and in the thick of all the events in 1968 so I look forward to see if we experienced that time in the same way. I was in the S.F. Student/Wonder Strike but a self-effacing guy (which means that I was a good whistleblower for information useful to strikers. I see that I have not really explored your website, or was ignorant of it — I look forward to seeing more when I have a working computer again.
