(C) Responses:
	1: 19  Interesting to the interest of the nation.  Good relation
to chemistry.
	2: 8 It's acceptable, but short and slightly boring.
	3: 7 Oversimplified and not very fluid.  Overall not extremely
effective, but definitely get the point across.
	4: 9 Good content.
	5: 16 Members of aol is interesting, but not necessarily

fairly well.
