Note from the Editor

Greetings all,
This is our first on-line issue with an expanded staff. Most of this was actually finished a year ago in 2000 but this that and the next thing happened and a year went by! So with a little fixing up and a little adjustment here and there the issue is now ready for publication. Please enjoy. I would like to thank all of the staff members who helped out on this issue in one way or another including Cathryn Rice-Simmons, Nizam Shafi and Ahmed al Ashqi Jerrahi Chisti
