A.A. Conference Approved Myths
A Good Start on and Old Subject
By Dick B.
We begin with the following much-needed article from Pete’s Stuff. It incorporates the long-ignored Box 459 article that GSO has told at least one seeker that it couldn’t find the material. If you want to see an excellent and much longer discussion of this subject, go to the Hindsfoot Foundation site where Professor Glenn Chesnut lays this entire Conference Approved problem in terms of its real importance.
I receive questions about this all the time; and people at conferences, Central Offices, and meetings are confronted with the “conference approved” nonsense with great frequency. Any AA can read anything any time anywhere for any purpose inside or outside of A.A. And that includes comic books and computer manuals. There is no Tradition that says otherwise. There is no Tradition that can or should or will censor or “censure” what is presented at a meeting, whether in discussion or by reading or by literature on a table. And if someone thinks he’s found the mythical tradition, tell him the fact and then tell him the Traditions are not laws.

About Shannon Marie
For a flower to grow and blossom, it has to go thru a lot of dirt. It also need a lot of care and nurturing. This analogy reminds me of all the tough as well as rewarding experiences I have had in life. Your life can change in a split second. I suffered a severe traumatic brain injury on November 17, 1984 at the age of fifteen. The accident left me in a deep coma for two months. My rehabilitation was learning to walk, talk, chew, swallow, and most importantly, to SMILE! The doctor's prognosis was not good, but my true grit determination proved them all wrong. With my Mother's "Never Give Up" attitude, she instilled in me that anything is possible! Abraham Lincoln once said, "Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." That has become my philosophy on life.

Internationally bestselling author Tess Gerritsen took an unusual route to a writing career. A graduate of Stanford University, Tess went on to medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, where she was awarded her M.D.
While on maternity leave from her work as a physician, she began to write fiction. In 1987, her first novel was published. Call After Midnight, a romantic thriller, was followed by eight more romantic suspense novels. She also wrote a screenplay, “Adrift”, which aired as a 1993 CBS Movie of the Week starring Kate Jackson.
Tess’s first medical thriller, Harvest, was released in hardcover in 1996, and it marked her debut on the New York Times bestseller list. Her suspense novels since then have been: Life Support (1997), Bloodstream (1998), Gravity (1999), The Surgeon (2001), The Apprentice (2002), The Sinner (2003), Body Double (2004), Vanish (2005), The Mephisto Club (2006), The Bone Garden (2007), The Keepsake (2008; UK title: Keeping the Dead), Ice Cold (2010; UK title: The Killing Place), The Silent Girl (2011), and Last To Die (August 2012.) Her books have been published in forty countries, and more than 25 million copies have been sold around the world.
Publisher Weekly has dubbed her the “medical suspense queen”.
Her series of novels featuring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the TNT television series “Rizzoli & Isles” starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander.
