More than any other occupational group, historians are expected to observe anniversaries. Still, we failed to commemorate our first five-year anniversary in the previous issue. We should have mentioned at the June meeting in 2005 that our first meeting was on 16 June 2000. Not to worry: in June 2010 we will celebrate our second five-year anniversary in style!

You will read how we have fared thus far in the report of the general meeting. Overall, we are pleased with our achievements, although we urge everybody to help increase the number of Friends.

Our experiment last time with having several people deliver the lecture was such a success that we have repeated it, featuring three presentations about art at the IISH this time. On this note, we present the economic alphabet from The Crank in a comic-strip format.
