Letters to the Editor
A nice edition of the Newsletter (July, 2010). As an ASAP member going back many, many years, I found it very informative, interesting, and refreshing. I must say that Joe Kenan’s note brought me back to over 20 years ago, when those of us on the Executive Council (I am a Past President) expressed very similar feelings – hemorrhaging funds and members and concern about whether ASAP would last. Many of the past issues appear to have been resolved – non-physician members, less expensive meetings, less frequent publication of the Annals. Hopefully (and likely) membership (in the early 80′s we were over 1000 members) will reverse itself. I say likely because we have managed to get through bad times and we still exist. Thanks also to Lois Flaherty for her continuing work on the Annals.

Just a brief note to say that I thought the Summer 2010 ASAP Newsletter was the best I’ve seen in a long time. In fact, it was so interesting, I essentially read it from cover-to-cover when I had only planned to skim through it!
Other than the picture of me making me appear to be chubbier than my internal self-image, I enjoyed the contents and the format. Keep up the good work!
