Thanks, everybody, for letting me know that AC has arrived.

Ever mail something important, and when it seems like it's taking forever to
get there, you begin to worry that it's gotten lost? I feel like that with
every issue, and always breathe a sigh of relief when I know it's showing

Anyway, work has begun on the next issue, featuring goldeye in aquaria,
lamprey public relations, and more!

Yr obt ed,


P.S. Sajjad, no sailfin shiners are known from the Illinois River, as far as
I know. Do you still have it?
