RE: Seeking accessible Drupal tutorial

Speaking of wives, you worked with my wife Susan before we were married at
the K School and I had met your Susan at conferences and such before you
were married.  Frankly, I'm pretty well convinced that there is a conspiracy
of Susans watching our every move <laugh>.

A Susan makes a lovely wife, indeed!

I just ordered the following two books from Amazon.com, shipped to Chris
and Susan Hofstader:

Building powerful and robust websites with Drupal 6 ÿÿ
Should arrive by May 1, and
Pro Drupal Development, Second Edition (Pro) ÿÿ
should arrive in July (a pre-order).

I do not need the print versions, so donate to a good cause.  I would
appreciate help from Jackie, Jim Homme, and any other BookShare volunteers
in validating the books ASAP after the scans are submitted.

Cheers,
Jamal
