Thanks Ching.

If everyone is in agreement with the proposed suggestion that we cosign the 
SSAC letter, then I will alter the Sept 13 agenda and add approval of us 
cosigning the letter to the consent agenda, which would have the added benefit 
of removing a full agenda item from what at present is a very, very full agenda.

If anyone objects, please say so by COB tomorrow.
