Full Text: Members, thank you. It is your continued dedication to your respective fields that has fueled the impressive growth of the ACFEI, and its flagship journal, The Forensic Examiner[R], has grown by the same leaps and bounds. The journal has grown from Dr. Robert O'Block's dream, first embodied by a single- page typewritten newsletter, into a full-color, nationally distributed publication offering insights into new research, agencies, case studies, ways of thinking, and all manners of fascinating facts and information. Inside, you will find a visual timeline charting the journal's evolution and expansion from its beginnings in the early '90s to the present.

All of our editors and graphic designers had hands in the development of this issue to engage you intellectually, creatively, and professionally. We all truly "stepped it up" to deliver the strongest issue to date. As we celebrate our 100th issue with senses of pride and duty, we are also thinking about the future. In 2011, expect further changes as we foray into new territories, including digital distribution through major e-reader platforms and new, stellar design concepts and styling. These are, of course, continued benefits provided courtesy of ACFEI to all of its members.

I would especially like to thank those members whose articles appear in this issue. The content and topics covered represent a full spectrum of the forensic arena, and the effort that was taken to write them is evident on every page. Thank you for your contributions to this very special issue; it is an honor to work with you--and all of the authors whose works have appeared in the pages of The Forensic Examiner[R]. I cannot emphasize enough that this publication is what it has become because of your continued efforts and your dedication to your passions; academic and professional development; and science, integrity, and justice.

I trust you are as excited as I about the future of our esteemed publication as we push our boundaries, grow, and change for the continual better.

Respectful thanks,

Christopher Powers
