My 2 cents worth on why there aren't more articles........ I'd bet that none
of us are submitting any!!  And do we want to read histo articles written by
non-hist people??  Probably not...... lets start submitting stuff!!!  (just
my opinion)

>Debra brings up a very good point - why doesn't ASCP have more continuing
ed, articles and support for our profession?  I am continually disappointed
when I read Laboratory Medicine and see very little about our field.  We pay
our dues and get little in return (except our yearly sticker that says we
are members.)  Almost seems like taxation without representation......
