    Dear Sheila,
    Your interview with Dr. Riess was so informative. You were well equipped with intriguing questions and his answers were most interesting and comprehensible. I hope he will be your guest again soon. He will receive the Einstein Medal next month in Bern, Switzerland.
    Thank you.
