Mother Tongue 26 (Spring 1996)
Harold C. Fleming, Editor

The Hottest and Latest News. While the very hottest and most recent news is often fairly old for some scholars close to the action, particularly in biogenetics, for colleagues in other disciplines the news may be absolutely fresh and exciting. Indeed for others the news ordinarily never would have reached them, working in the depths of another field. The hottest, latest news is not necessarily the most important news -- in the wisdom of hindsight it may even be irrelevant to our common enterprise. But, since the items are new, they have within them the potential of establishing something or disestablishing something else. Our traditional mode of presentation features fossils first or at least archeological developments.

Somewhat Cooler News. With some guilt we include portions of last year's hot news, chosen for their newsworthy qualities for scholars not likely to have heard it. Again we remind you that cool news may turn out to be of unrealized importance. With great gratitude to Alvah 'Pardner' Hicks: we are not able to publish large parts of his heroic efforts in 1995 to abstract the key developments in biogenetics and archeology for us.
