Subject: be of good cheer
Tomorrow morning early I'm off to the Tyrol, in Austria, for a week of
hill-walking. (Please note, before envy overcomes you (as otherwise it
might), that this is my sole holiday until Christmas or thereabouts.)
Having left no time for our assistant editor to pick up the various bits
and pieces concerned with publishing Humanist, I am constrained to let our
long conversation fall silent for the week. You may of course continue to
submit messages. Please do, if the spirit moves you.
A recent enquiry about a lost message, asking if perhaps it might not have
been deemed suitable for publication here, reminds me that it's been a
while since I issued my standard reassurance: that no message is ever made
to disappear without the author of it being told, and told why. This
happens so seldom that it would almost be right to say it never happens.
Surely these days everyone is vexed by spam, and I suspect many of you
receive as much or more e-mail as I do (an average of 315 messages/day). So
I am sure you can understand how easily a message from Humanist, or from
anyone to me, can get lost. Again, if you do not see a submission published
on Humanist within 48 hours of submitting it, please send it to me again. I
apologise on behalf of a very flawed world. Remember when we used to say
that electronic communications would liberate us from its problems?
