-- and elsewhere on >the CMP site. Anne Anne, Mary, and colleagues: There's a serious "story behind the story" of that NYT article. It is not likely to affect responses to it directly, but you should know that the reporter was seriously involved in fomenting the "rebellion" herself, seriously misrepresented almost all aspects of what she purported to report (including a project that I am part of in NJ), and will be the subject of serious stories herself in the not too distant future, stories that will reveal incontrovertibly how biased that story really was.
Keep in mind that whatever you write will likely become part of the cumulative story. Needless to say, the suggestions previously offered are in good alignment with the facts of the situation. Cheers, Jim K
