From The Editor

aya aya niihkaania!

Every once in a while the degree to which those of us who work on SAIL dare human, prone to errors and mistakes, shines more brightly than makes us comfortable. That was true in sail 17.1 (Spring 2005) when editors and copy-editors missed a glaring error in Scott Andrews's review of D. L. Birchfield's Field of Honor in which "Hirschfield" is substituted for "Birchfield" throughout the review. We deeply regret the error and apologize to both Dr. Andrews and Dr. Birchfield for any problems this may have caused.

Newii,
Malea Powell
