Inspired by the cover image of San Diego, a favorite and the 2018 site of the Joint Mathematics Meetings, we indulge ourselves in the JMM Program (page 1067), read more about the AMS Short Course lecture topics (page 1016), make plans to attend, and make sure our memberships are up to date. We enjoy articles by Jessica Sidman and Audrey St. John on “The Rigidity of Frameworks” and by Catherine Bandle on “Dido's Problem.” We mull over opinion pieces, including a cautionary tale about a proposal to avoid election district gerrymandering, which may come before the Supreme Court this month. We thank Susan Kelly, Carly Shinners, and Katherine Zoroufy for providing the story of Euphemia Lofton Haynes, the first African American woman to receive a PhD in mathematics. —Frank Morgan, Editor-in-Chief
