***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** The front page of the Wall Street Journal featured a blurb about the McPherson, Smith-Lovin, and Brashears study. I don't remember ever seeing a sociological study featured there. It is probably a combination of the importance of their topic with the blessed alacrity of ASA in bringing good research to the broader public. More to come, I hope. _____________________________________________________________ Sheen S.
