Well, I received 20 responses in 24 hours, many who would move from abroad
to New York! I am very pleased with this number. Hopefully this will ease my
boss's concern. But please continue to reply to me if you would be
interested and haven't done so yet. The higher the number the more
convincing the argument to my boss.

Thank you to all who replied. What a great mailing list. I will let you know
if it actually turns into a real job opportunity.
