Because Rune is published without censorship or prior viewing by the Board of Directors, the following disclaimer was accidentally omitted from the last Rune:
“All opinions expressed herein are those of the expressors and are not to be construed as reflecting opinions or policies of the Minnesota Science Fiction Society, Inc.”
Without a disclaimer, some people might assume that material in Rune reflects an official opinion of the Board of Directors or the membership as a whole. The Board of Directors regrets that this disclaimer did not appear on Rune Volume 10, Number 10. We sincerely apologize to anyone who might have been hurt or offended because they thought such material spoke for the Minnesota Science Fiction Society, Inc. as a whole.
