This week's issues:

1. Apology
2. Women in the History of Science

------------------------------------------------------------
1.  Apology

I apologize to Diana and the AAS office for my implication 
that they had not supported the babysitting efforts at 
meetings in the past.  I did not mean to imply that.  They 
have ALWAYS given information on providers in the area and 
subsidized the babysitting in San Diego.  My point was that
the AAS office provided more support for this meeting; this 
was the first time the AAS officially signed the contract 
and accepted reservations and payment in advance.  Having 
appropriate facilities and child care providers does require 
advance notice, and only ONE person signed up for this 
service in Chicago.
