Editorial Matters
I’m glad I wasn’t here for the September
mailing session. The issue came in late on
September 29, all nice and neat in plastic bags.
Unfortunately, the DAW flyer had been left
out of the 5,000 subscription copies. Apparently,
it was misplaced between the printer and
the bagger. Shelly fortunately noticed it before
the delivery truck left, and sent back part of the
shipment. Instead o f just putting labels on
plastic bags, our work crew had to dismember
the bags, throw away the mailing sheet, and
insert the copy plus flyer into an envelope (to
be metered). The first class copies and UPS
packages went out on September 30, but the
second class had to wait for redelivery over the
weekend. The staff prepared it over the weekend
and mailed it the following Monday. So
now you know why your issue was late.
I was blissfully ignorant of all this. Ricia and
I were in Poland, and there is no way you can
pick up the phone and call home from there.
