Once again, my name confuses:

And gift money has beautiful buoyancy. Fulbright Scholar Caley McIntyre, Weinberg ‘05 grad, is currently enjoying the benefits of the grant – and a slow economy – while researching health insurance issues in Mexico. “It has in a perverse way been incredibly helpful,” McIntyre says. The general economic collapse has had the effect of weakening the peso against the dollar and, as she is paid in dollars, the exchange rate has translated to a 20 percent raise in her stipends. “It feels odd to be benefiting from a financial meltdown, but I can’t complain too much about extra pesos in my pocket.”

Alexandra, if you somehow end up seeing this, don’t worry; I’m both used to and entertained by the confusion. Good article otherwise!
