Abstract The purpose of this paper is to call the observing community’s attention to the re-affirmation that a majority, 80 percent, of the basic UBV standard stars either are suspected or known variable stars. The elucidation of these stars’ variability characteristics in exquisite detail is a task for which AAVSO observers are eminently qualified.
