essentially nothing

I went through the December issues (which include the index for the respective year) of the RASC Journal all the way back to 2006 looking for pieces on double stars. And there was nothing. Amazingly, no specific articles on double or multiple star viewing, imaging, measurement, etc. I found one item, in the February 2008 issue, by Ling where he shared his discovery of a double star (ZC1042 aka SAO78770) during a lunar occultation. Cool. But it is somewhat shocking that there are no other items. Not sure why. Also, the author intimated he expected to have more discoveries and I didn't see anything.
