In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • Hello Moses
  • Karen Alkalay-Gut (bio)

This is your sister When you get a chance Give me a call

Hello Moses It's me again I know you're pissed About what I said about your wife I'm sorry It's hard for me To let go

Hi again, Moses Nobody's talking to me Just because I dared Criticize you [End Page 70]

I don't want to bring it up But I'm the same sister Who saved your life Out there on the Nile

Hell I risked My own

Moses, hi! Thanks for the cure. I owe you one.
