        Let's give credit where credit is due. Ann Killebrew has been doing a wonderful job as Editor of NEA. The articles, which deal with important and timely subjects, not only look terrific but appear on schedule. Too bad NEA will be losing her.

          Does the editor serve a three-year term because they have trouble finding
          someone to do it? After Bernard Bloch's and Bill Bright's essentially life
          tenures as editor of *Language*, the Linguistic Society of America went to a
          _seven_-year term, which seems to work well.
