Hey, speaking of Orly and Dr. Maoz, two things:

1) Couldn't find the class picture. I thought it might be on that CD she gave us, but it appeared to be only Israeli music, which nobody really needs.

2) Do you have the other essay assignment for the Maoz final? I have the Amos Oz/AB Yehoshua one, but I feel like there was something else I can't find.
