From: LINGUIST List <linguistlinguistlist.org>
Subject: Please help us meet our goal in the Advisors' Challenge and end Fund Drive!
E-mail this message to a friend

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I've been sitting here this morning (at least morning in
the eastern USA) catching up with LINGUIST. Unfortunately,
the fund drive is a major distraction - I find I cannot
concentrate on calls, conferences, book notices, and all
the other important services LINGUIST provides, because
I am distracted by the fund drive mailings. This is not
a good way -- especially for those of us struggling to
keep up when our university jobs are not directly in
Linguistics -- to manage our professional/scholarly lives.
So, please give generously to end the fund drive today so
that all of us can go back to doing Linguistics.
