We are deeply grateful to Rep. Judy Chu for sharing her wisdom with about 30 participants of our monthly meeting last Thursday. The recording will be available on the Living Earth You Channel in the next couple of days.
Our regular meetings to discuss papers resume this week as we discuss a paper on Hong Kong together with Bob Detrano’s letter explaining how he improved it and that he can’t be with us. Discussing that paper will be a main project. I hope it will move us toward consensus.
At our last meeting we discussed the paper on Taiwan. If we have any one who is with us primarily to discuss that, we will of course give that priority. We expect a good deal more input before agreement on that one.
I am also asking Charles to send copies of the brief summary of the paper by Roy Morrison. It is not a regular part of this collection, but it shows dramatically how cooperation between the United States and China could achieve remarkable results otherwise unattainable. My goal is after three more sessions to have five or six papers ready to go public; and we plan to make that paper No. 1.
I want all of the present participants to feel comfortable with all the papers we make public; so I’m asking that if you have not already approved of this, you check and make sure that you can. Almost all of us have copies of Zhihe’s paper on the One-Child experiment. I think it is practically ready to go public, but if you have missed it, please let Charles know.
We have no deadlines. But I do want to work toward completion of what has already been largely agreed upon.
Please arrange to be with us. We need to move forward.
