      Hello Mr Richman

      I believe this list omitted three Bay Area interns. I checked carefully since one of them is my son.

      Using a list from:

      *Brown, Jamal*Hometown: Sacramento, CA; Dartmouth College, NH

      *Day, Alex*Hometown: Cupertino, CA; Johns Hopkins University, MD

      *Sharif, Zuheir *Hometown: Sacramento, CA; Texas A&M University, TX

      appear to have been omitted.
