For awhile I believed that MAA was the saintliness, until, awhile ago, I got a phone call from someone who said that they are from the MAA. I got all excited (perhaps they are inviting me to give a talk or something), until it emerged that they are some VISA card company that got my name and phone number from the MAA. When I e-mailed the executive director, Marcia Sward, about it, she admitted that it was arranged by the MAA, and even bragged that it was a good deal' and that many members were happy about it'. I am ashamed to be in an organization that sells its members' phone numbers to the scum of the earth: the phone solicitors. So, Shame on you, MAA!
