I didn't know about the link between John and Kevin. Sounds like Qiang or Myles, plus
Francis, would be best combination of expertise and speediness.
By the way, for online submission you'll just need to convert the Latex to a PDF file and
submit that.
Have a good weekend,
Tim

Dear Phil and Tim,
I did leave Kevin's name off because of concerns that he might be extremely upset by
Christy's involvement in Douglass et al. I guess you know that John was a Ph.D. student
of Kevin's. It must be tough to have a student who's the antithesis of everything you
stand for and care about - careful, thorough science.
Qiang Fu would be great, since he's so knowledgable about MSU-related issues. I think he
would be fast, too. Myles reviewed one of the GRL versions of Douglass et al., so he's
very familiar with this territory.
With best regards,
Ben

Ben,
I briefly discussed this with Tim a few minutes ago.
With IDAG coming up, it is probably best not on to use Gabi and Myles.
I also suggested that Mike Wallace might be slow - as Myles would
have been. Peter S might not be right for the IDAG reason and he
does work for the HC - where Peter T does.
If Jim is back working he would be good. So would Fu. If Tim can
just persuade them to do it - and quickly.
I did suggest Kevin - he would do it quickly - but it may be a read rag
to a bull with John Christy on the other paper.
Glad to see you've gone down his route!
Have a good weekend!
Ruth says hello!
Cheers
Phil
