Since everybody who knows how to print out the list of donors is on vacation this week, I will have to omit it this time.
Other matters on my mind involve readers' preferences, e-mail subscriptions, a faster way of sending mailings overseas, and the newsletter's 25th anniversary.
All options are open for now, so let me know whether the electronic format appeals to you, either along with or instead of the paper version.
I decided that for the time being anyway, we should use a category variously called Small Packet Air, AO Mail, or Regular Printed Matter--Air, for overseas destinations. It costs almost twice as much as Printed Matter Surface, but less than First Class Air.
P.S. Subscription prices for individuals in 2000 will be only $35. Student rates will go back to $20.
People who have already prepaid can either get a refund or apply the overpayment to their next renewal. We will send a notice to all prepaid individual subscribers, with a form on which they can indicate their choice.
