"So what happened to your grand plan to get a lot of other suckers to do your work, then, Manus?" I hear you asking. Well, I am happy to report that I received a very respectable number of e-mails from people volunteering to help edit The Pouch. The reason this issue is so late has nothing to do with those people, whom I truly appreciate. Instead, it has to do with the fact that I was so busy that I never even got around to telling those guys what needed to be done and how to do it.
As a result, I decided to edit this issue myself, simply because it was already so late and I didn't want anyone else to share the blame for its excessive tardiness. So late it is, and the fault is entirely mine. Sorry everyone, but better late than never.
And by saying this, I certainly don't mean to slight the other articles. By my estimation, you will find yourself well entertained, informed, and educated by everything in this issue. From top to bottom, it's a high-quality issue (in my opinion).
In the main, this is a good thing, but every silver lining has a cloud....
But the sad fact is that it is only an extra month. Less than a month, in fact, because the Spring Retreat issue is slated to be published on the 31st of May. Less than three weeks from the date of this writing. We'll see how close to that date it actually makes it to your screen, but my point is that to make it a decent-sized issue will require a lot of you to take up pen and ink (well, finger and keyboard) and write an article for publication. Quickly. How about it?
So with that to look forward to, I'll now turn you loose to....
