Editor's note

A few items from the Editor's desk in the glass-enclosed newsroom high above Global Military Justice Reform Plaza.

First, we've had a string of contributions from Canada. These are most welcome. Some have been fairly long. This is good, but in order to make room for more than one or two posts on the screen, I've started to inserting breaks. The remainder of the post shows up on a continuation page, and is easy to reach. If one of your posts got broken up this way, that's the reason. In any event, contributors are encouraged to post, and readers are encouraged to comment. (Real names only, please.)

Speaking of comments: the Editor moderates comments. We get quite a few spam comments. They're fairly predictable, and trust me, you don't want to see them. Perhaps some slow news day I may post one or two samples, just so you see what you are missing.

Second, on Monday, August 3, at 9:00 a.m. East Coast time, we'll host Town Hall 6 via zoom, with Dr. Aifheli E. Tshivhase as the presenter. His topic will be "Lockdown and the armed forces in South Africa: the Khosa 'murder' case and preliminary lessons for military justice." 

Please join us. If you have not received an invitation, here are the specifics:
Meeting ID: 693 528 3348

There will be time for questions and answers.

Please email the Editor if you would like to be added to the Town Hall distribution list (or if you are interested in becoming a Global Military Justice Reform contributor).

Third, congratulations to Brenner Fissell and his merry band over at the new-and-improved CAAFlog site. It gets better and better.

Finally, while we're chatting, let's do the numbers:
