The title of this President's Page is an epigram by Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr (1808–1890) who served as an Editor of Le Figaro, a newspaper published in Paris. It is usually translated as "the more things change, the more they stay the same." To illustrate this I thought it might be instructive to take a look at the first (July 1978) "Message from the President" written by Bob Lucky. He was our 1978–79 President and needs no introduction (www.boblucky.com). Read and enjoy, we haven't changed that much...
