Change of plans

Hi:

Sorry for this news, but with his busy lecture schedule this weekend, he is needing additional travel, prep, and recuperation time.  
Given that he will be at several events here in Eugene, the Wesley Center has honored his reasonable request to cancelFriday evening.

He is an amazing speaker and brilliant scholar.  It is well worth the cost of admission.

Students who were planning to come Friday, please let me know.  The Wesley center will help see you can attend a lecture instead.

Peace,

Warren Light
