Regarding Diana Morgan's story on child care at scientific conferences [The Scientist, April 1, 1991, page 1], I agree that there is a need for day care at meetings.

As more and more divorced fathers are awarded joint custody, there will be more balance and better integration of children's needs into meetings.

I'm happy and heartened to see that happening.
