Thursday – March 5, after 2 phone conversations
What I'll do, then, is apply for the Mississippi Project – will have information sent to you at your office which you can take home, or if it's better you can ask me to send an "initial" packet of info to you and Mother at home. If I am accepted for the project, I'll not decide to do it for sure until I get Mom's approval (and/or hopefully her understanding). If she really feels terrible about it (the danger part should be the only criterion this time, because, yes, I will try to make it easy for her to discuss and decide; I won't "pressure" her, etc) – if she does still feel too upset about it – then I won't go but will work here in L.A. on voter registration, tutoring in the ghetto, and/or defeating the Rumford [Fair Housing] Act Initiative with the L.A. Commission on Human Relations.
Many of my good friends are applying for exactly these same summer experiences – among them, Carolyn Graessle – my Sponsor , who's graduating in June (she was disappointed to have missed you, but was at home sick). If we were working together, especially in L.A., we would perhaps live together, thus not making any "roommate problem."
Well, I'll write more later after looking into these things. I would like to know also about these reduced flight rates – from Denver, Salt Lake, even L.A. or Ontario. Trouble is that Heidi said she could hardly even think of the $100 train ticket (round trip) I'm sure that if the 2 of us came together we'd be safe driving part way (to Denver on SLC) – Vacation begins April 4 and ends the 13th or whatever the Monday is .
