Dont give up! Its a pretty bleak picture for Democratic activists at the momentbut at least we can have a lively discussion about it. This month, we bring you Jim Stanbery, professor of political science at Harbor College. Jim will speak on Prospects For the Future of the Democratic Party in the Coming Realignment of Political Coalitions in the 21st Century.
Jim is a learned and engaging speaker. He is past president of the faculty at Harbor and of the United Nations Association. His resume also includes Peace Corps service in the Philippines and a runoff for Los Angeles City Council.

|FROM THE EDITOR
As I do every year, I want to remind you that the newsletter takes the month of December off. Ill be back with a January issue. To understate the matter, this has been an eventful year for Democratsand for anyone remotely interested in the state of the nation. However, I think our club just keeps getting better: we raise more money, we bring in more new and active members, we go places and make ourselves known. Its my goal to reflect these achievements in the newsletter and Ive had lots of help.
I want to thank my excellent correspondents, without whom I couldnt do this job: Bobbi Buescher, our new president who is also a fine writer; Monroe Weinstock, who also keeps getting better; Lori Geittmann, herself a genuine journalist; Steve Zucker, who contributes reviews and articles that help keep things interesting. I also get good items from Shirlee Browne, Dilip Adarkar, and Teresa Bird, and help of many kinds from Jim McGreevy, who also posts the newsletter on our website. Of course, Mary Lou Elsner and her husband Stan are there for me every month to get it mailed promptly. I encourage the rest of you to contribute. The broaderbased our coverage, the better. I wish all of you a cheery holiday.
