I was going to focus on US but I am open to covering around the world.
Please do forward our correspondence to the list. But please make it
clear this is a *possible* article. I can't guarantee I will write

I can sell to my editors. Also, the article would likely appear at
BusinessWeek.com but not in the magazine. Thanks again.
