	Being closely involved with NABA since its beginning,

it surprised
me to find out that there were anti-collecting 
editorials (which are all
written by Glassberg) in American Butterflies. 
Assuming that Jim was correct
and my memory was faulty, at his suggestion, I dug out

the first five
volumes (from Feb 1993 to Winter 1997) and scanned the

editorials for all
this anti-collecting propaganda. I could find none. 
	In fact, I found in the very first editorial the 
following: "Because
a number of people have asked about the position of 
NABA in regard to
collecting butterflies, the board voted to adopt the 
following policy
statement: Collecting butterflies is not included 
among the purposes of NABA
but NABA is not in opposition to other groups for 
which this may be a
legitimate purpose."  
Thanks Fred.  I think we have exhausted this thread.
Earlier posts today actually made fun of watchers.

lepps and of course mosquitoes.
