Dear fellow SOCNETters,

First of all, thank you all for the ideas about political interlocks. This
e-mail is a summary of what I have received, on or off the list, and some of
the sources that I found.

This, however, does not mean to close discussion.

Here is a simple (?) question that I am really interested in:
What proportion of the Fortune 500 firms in the US are connected to
politics? Maybe in the sense of having former top political officeholders
(both federal and state) on their boards?
