I intend to respond to every e-mail I receive within three days, but there are times when the volume and my circumstances do not permit this. And sometimes I inadvertently delete or lose your mail before I get to it. It happens. If you have written me and haven't received a response within three days, please send it again, making a note that it is the second time. I almost never lose things twice.
