SFWA President Endorses Politically Correct Bulletin Censorship

Please note that an earlier version of the following was sent to a few members and then subsequently revised to better reflect its purpose and goals. This should be taken as the official, public version.

As a former Bulletin editor serving at the pleasure of two SFWA Presidents (Paul Levinson and Norman Spinrad) I was shocked when I visited the page at the SFWA website where the call for a new Bulletin editor listed the new job guidelines and requirements.
