Note from Kermit Cole, “In the News” editor:
Bob Fancher pointed out that the headline and summary I had previously written for this piece was inaccurate, and offered the headline and summary above instead, for which I thank him.
All I can say is that it’s hard to boil things down to three sentences that also capture what I think makes it of interest to the MIA community. I appreciate help when I can get it. Thanks, Bob.
