Hello! Thanks for reading our magazine. We hope you like it. I want to acknowledge all the hard-working writers whose work we couldn't include in this issue. Once again we just didn't have enough room for everyone.

I especially want to thank Scott Tompkins. He wrote a dynamite story on the future Amtrak line from Vancouver, British Columbia, to Portland, Ore., only to have it axed because a similar story ran in Klipsun a year ago.

The editors and I talked about it. We told him, "Well, we might run it. But... we only have one page. Could you shorten it?" And he did — in fact, he cut over half of it. But in the end we decided running the shortened version, simply to fill space, would do both Scott and the story an injustice. Like the other writers we couldn't publish, Scott did a lot of work for little return, and we appreciate it. Anyway, you'll surely see his piece published elsewhere.

We have a lot of interesting articles for you in this issue. One of my favorites is Michele Thielke's piece on the Whatcom Hills Waldorf School. I believe educating a child is society's most important undertak­ ing. I was lucky enough to attend a small, personal grade school. Sadly, many kids don't get the kind of caring attention available at schools like Waldorf. It makes one wonder how many other things our society has backwards.
