 Good point, Tom.  One I hadn't really anticipated.
 The affiliation of SCREEN-L with academic organizations is a concept
 in its formative stages.  Suggestions such as these are very helpful.
 The last thing I want to see is SCREEN-L turning into some kind of
 bureaucratic quagmire of rules and regs.  I think it's possible to
 maintain its free flow of discussion and further optimize its use
 in the dissemination of film/TV studies information.  But maybe
 SCS/UFVA cosponsorship isn't the way.
 WE'll just have to see.  Thanks for the input.
          In our country we have those three unspeakably
          precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of
          conscience, and the prudence never to practice
