October is a month across academe when we settle into our work. That said, let us not forget that some among us this year are working through unwanted catastrophes. With earthquakes in Mexico, raging fires in the West, hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria causing interruptions and inflicting unimaginable damage, and the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico, please keep our colleagues in those affected areas in mind. Reflecting past generosity of CMS members, you may wish to consider providing financial support to appropriate relief efforts.
