*****  To join INSNA, visit  *****

Bev and I almost always go to the Sunbelt, but this year we're not.

As we founded INSNA in 1976-1977, I hope it is not too egotistical for me 
to say why:

We're both in good health, but are actively involved in getting our own 
research done, and presenting papers at the World Congress of Sociology 
and at the American Sociological Assoc. Plus saving meagre grant funds for 
those conferences plus RA support.

See you next year at the Sunbelt.
