Looks Good.

Looks good, though you may want to do a handout with it as well to help people follow it -- you are covering a lot of ground.

Stephen,
a handout is a great idea. I plan on giving out copies of Pres Faust's talk a week ahead. I should probably pass out a handout and the next weeks 'featured talk' at the beginning of the class.

I'm tempted to just turn the outline into a handout. I always tend to learn more by taking my own notes. Any thoughts?
