Dear Listees:

As a result -- directly and indirectly -- of Art Jones' Meteorite
Mailing List, I have friends, comrades, correspondents, and
acquaintances in France, England, Scotland, Austria, Germany,
Holland, Russia, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Chile,
Argentina, Canada, China, Japan, Italy, Sweden, South Africa, the
United States, and other countries.

With tonight being both the first night of Chanukah, and the Winter
Solstice, I found myself reflecting upon the violence in the Middle
East and elsewhere, as well as the political turmoil here in our own
country. Such thoughts reminded me that my travels to the wild places
have -- more often than not -- placed me in the company of real
people who were much more "like" me than not, and that I have
repeatedly seen science and the love of learning act as a catalyst
for friendship between different nationalities and cultures.

So, as the "real" millennium drawn to a close, it's worth noting that
-- as a loose and unofficial group of amateur and professional
scientists and enthusiasts -- we are perhaps doing a better job at
fostering international friendship and understanding that many of our

I'd like to convey my good wishes to List members the world over, in
the hope that this -- and the thousands of other specialist internet
discussion groups -- help us to discover that our shared interests
are much more important than our political and religious differences.
