I agree.

Very appropriate communication.

While I do agree there are a lot of unnecessary personal messages that
result from people over using the "Reply" command on their e-mail, I must
beg to differ regarding Su's message. I think the fact that 18 copies of
Maher's edited collection of Kelly's essays are in print and readily
available is important news indeed! I was delighted to get this info,
and hope others benefit from it as well!

Maybe, if there is enough interest, a third printing of the Maher book
might become a possibility. I know a lot of people who would love to get
a hold of a copy for themselves!
