The January issue features two fascinating articles about the Fields Medal. One considers whether the Fields Medal is actually the Nobel Prize of mathematics, and the other discusses whether the Fields Medal is a career-breaker for mathematical research. We also have an historical article about David Rittenhouse and a memorial article for distinguished analyst Joram Lindenstrauss. There is an article about the experience of being a Congressional Fellow in the United States Senate, and a Doceamus about writing a compelling teaching statement. Finally, there is a fascinating collection of Letters to the Editor that discuss whether or not diversity trumps ability. —Steven G. Krantz, Editor
