campaign promises

Congratulations to Jeremy Freese, who was elected to the ASA Committee on Publications. Jeremy campaigned on an anti-torture platform that included ending both waterboarding and including publisher cities in bibliographic citations. I hope he can also straighten out that problem with Contemporary Sociology going back to 1972 sociology categories for its book reviews (who cares about race and gender anyway?), which has caused enough email to make my eyes bleed.

Also, big ups to Andy Perrin, elected to the Committee on Committees. Insert joke about the nature of bureaucracy here. As I recall, Andy’s promises included free wifi at the ASA, and lollipops for everyone who presents.

  1. Congratulations all around!

    Speaking of Committee Committees, I have recently been receiving spam from the “Association of Association Professionals.”
