Another note of public thanks to Donna Cunningham for doing the work
that helps to ground a rancorous discussion in citable research (something
I must admit I did *not* do in my own posts!).  Thanks to others on the list
who took note of her work, her approach, and felt a similar appreciation.
Flames continue to burn on Screen-L.  They come from a very small minority
of subscribers, happily, but they persist to the extent that the list as
a whole is affected.  The heat's too fierce recently to make summer participa-
tion enjoyable or productive for *this* subscriber, I'm afraid, though I
laud the continued efforts of the majority to engage in thoughtful,
mutually beneficial, and congenial discussion of shared interests.
Signing off til cooler winds blow,
Alison McKee
