Thanks to Peter for these incisive words.

The "coral reef science community" thrives, alas the President and 
Council of ISRS do not. When did members last hear from the President? 
When did they last receive a copy of 'Reef Encounter'? What has happened 
since the 11th ICRS? Are there to be any 2011 ISRS Graduate Fellowships? 
Will there be a Darwin Medal awarded at the 2012 ICRS - if so when will 
there be a call for nominations? ISRS please awake from your slumbers.

Thankfully, the journal 'Coral Reefs'; is the one shining light in all 
of this fog. Under the continued editorship of Rolf Bak and Betsy 
Gladfelter it now ranks 3rd in its class with an Impact Factor of 3.78. 
It has never been so high in its 20 year history.
