Firstly, Many thanks to those of you who proposed an increase in my already bloated salary as IAA Editor. I will be putting issue 462 together from my new office in the Bahamas as soon as my new bikini-clad “assistant” tops up my daiquiri.
Many Canadians only got their copy of 460 this week (myself included). I cannot explain this but it does appear to be a Canada Post problem this time as some Canadians got their copy over 5 weeks ago! The service that we use ships all Journals, in their individual envelopes but in one bag, to a distribution point in the destination country where the destination country’s own postal system takes over and delivers the Journals as media mail. Since there are a number of distribution centers in Canada, I cannot tell which one is the culprit this time (they don’t stamp the individual envelopes). The fact that distribution WITHIN Canada was spread over a period of almost 6 weeks this time is very frustrating.
Our apologies to the members who had to wait such a long time and my thanks for your patience. Hopefully issue 461, which is being printed now, will not take as long.
Chris P., IAA Editor
