FYI - January 1996 Bulletin had 116 pages of which 8 were minutes.  
That's less than 10%. 
 We need to remember that most of the membership of AIS wants to read 
good informative information on BASIC stuff, not a thesis on hybridizing 
tetraploids.  I was glad to see Bill Maryott write a Glossary of Terms 
in January, and Terry Aitken on culture in July. Hope this trend will 
cont.  BUT!!!     
Regions & Chapters should take the ball of responsibility when it comes 
to local members.  I guess we just need to stop and get back to basics.
Whew, got to put away my soap box.
