Urgent Request! (r)

Regarding the message below... I just finished reading a fascinating book 
called _Burmese Looking Glass_.  The book is subtitled: "A Human Rights 
Adventure and a Jungle Revolution".  The author, Edith Mirante, spent a number 
of years meeting and working with the various groups along the Thai-Burmese 
border and lobbying US government officials regarding the SLORC usage of 
chemical weapons.
