            Distribution and edits of first draft Vistas

                   Julie asked that I send to the following: Julie, David, Anna, yourself, and the two Board liaisons. I felt this past issue could have benefitted from a first draft being sent to ALL members of the IC in addition to those aforementioned. It would have been great to include Bill's suggestions for slight rewording of headlines before the second draft being sent to article authors at the same time it was sent to IC members, their first look. At that point I think it would have been a surprise to the authors to see the headlines on their articles revised in print after we had sent them the proof. Even though the IC sees the Word doc before it is sent to me, I think things become more evident in layout form.
