bleaching follow-ups

     I have noticed similar comments to a number of bleaching reports 
     lately, something like "I don't know how this is going to affect 
     things in the long run," or "who knows what permanent damage this 
     extensive bleaching will cause."  I'm sure we all share the same dread 
     and concerns and it would be very productive if we could indeed find 
     out what really does happen.  

     Perhaps everyone submitting bleaching reports this year (including 
     yours truly) can post a "recovery report" some time late this year or 
     early in 1999 if possible.  Accumulated bleaching reports and recovery 
     reports could be accumulated, paired up and saved for reference.
