These old chestnuts ... again!

A few suggestions from one who has a foot firmly planted in each of the
academic/professional and birder/naturalist camps:

i) for those who claim to love AFO the way it was when it was ABW, but
neither subscribed to or wrote for either, the way forward is clear - get
writing and open your wallet - if AFO editorial policy is not to your
liking, participate!  the single greatest threat to a journal like AFO is
lack of participation - if you want more naturalist notes published (because
they are _absolutely_ interesting and worthwhile), write some or support
those who do.

ii) for those who think AFO, Emu et al. are too formal and demanding,
perhaps you need to re-launch "Cosmic Flashes" (see if you can find that in
Google [?] )

Fire retardant ready - flame away.
