Subject: 	Seeking Guest Moderator

I have enjoyed the posts of the past few weeks; they represent to me the 
kinds of exchanges of this list at its best. Perhaps, there is a lesson 
here for me.

One of the criticisms of the Roundtable format I received was that some 
members preferred the immediacy of the daily posts, not wishing to wait 
a week between sending a submission and hearing responses to it or vice 

On the other hand, I liked the Roundtable format because it encouraged, 
I hoped, reflection - time to think about the issue; time to read, 
research, and ponder; time to write about it; time to revise; and so on.

I asked if anyone wished to volunteer to guest moderate a Roundtable on 
the writings of Terence Hawkes or for that matter to guest moderate a 
Roundtable topic of one's choice. No one has responded. Maybe it's my 
timing with the fall term here in the northern hemisphere beginning; 
maybe the idea of guest moderating is too overwhelming for our already 
overburdened members; or maybe the Roundtable is simply not most 
people's discursive mode of choice.

Whatever the case may be, I ask again if any member feels moved to 
volunteer to be a guest moderator of a Roundtable discussion or to share 
your thoughts about the Roundtable format with me privately.
