No problem.  I just got on net for the first time in three weeks myself.
Thanks for the Rowe citation.  I'll check it out today, I think.

I agree.  We've been covering distinctions between high and low culture
in class, and the recent episode about the ceramic dog Roseanne bought
from the "Salvation Army" truck really plays on all of that in an
interesting way.

If you don't mind, I'd love to see them.  I probably won't use them,
though, since it will be this week we're covering tv and Roseanne.  Still,
I'd like to read them.
Thanks again!
