Re: Magazine errors

I've let my subscriptions to all three o he major magazines lapse. Although
there are a handful of high quality contributors like Karen Randall and Lee
Finley, I felt the value they added was more than subtracted by the
magazines' lax editorial standards and sloppy production. I suspect that if
the major aquarium mags don't clean up their act, the web and small upstarts
like Dave Gomberg's magazine will put them out of business sooner or later.
