Chris: I was telling you at Cosmos about Lynn O'Shaughnessy, the author/journalist who writes about finding the right college at the right price. Her Book is called "The College Solution." She's got her own website by the same name: and she also blogs about college at CBS MoneyWatch web site. She's spoken to parents at High Tech High, Our Lady of Peace, Grossmount HS, La Costa Canyon, and she's looking for more speaking opportunities. She'd be a great resource for you at LJCD--and she lives in La Mesa!

Thank you
