Every issue we make sure we have at least one practical article, at least one thought-provoking article, and at least one fun article. This issue there's great stuff in every category. In particular we have a new regular column: Washington Nonprofit Insight, from Rick Cohen. This column will appear in every other issue of Blue Avocado, and promises to give us just the brief "thought bytes" on national policy we want. And of course, the much-awaited results of the Blue Avocado 6-Word Novel Contest.
Next issue we'll be letting you know about our new Blue Avocado webinar series, where we expect to have sessions that are practical, thought-provoking and fun all in one. Enjoy this issue, and consider joining Blue Avocado as a sponsor or donor, too. Like public television, Blue Avocado is free to everyone, but it's our members and sponsors who make that possible. –Jan Masaoka
