Kelly, this is exactly the sort of reassurance we are looking for, and that 
was strikingly absent from reports on the Board meeting.  If there had been 
direction to ARRL staff to "increase non-line score copy in QST," as there 
was in the case of the Section News, then I would have zero complaint about 
the outcome.  Perhaps one of those ARRL luminaries would offer a statement 
of ARRL's intentions in this respect, and put the issue to rest (except, of 
course, for the requirement that we get busy writing).
