From our friends
Serious words from a devoted reader:
"I've been a big fan of HCN since a friend first donated a subscription to me...I've received piles of HCN on at least four continents at this point. So, you see, the printed magazine, in the past 20 years, has become part of the warp and weft of my life and I am unwilling to leave it behind..."
Paul Brockmann, constant traveler
A constant commitment to the environment
Needless to say, we love and appreciate the fine work all of you do to illustrate the importance of our constant commitment to the environment.
Thanks to all of you for illuminating the critical issues of our world, country and the West. Keep up the great work!
Jeff and Lisa,
HCN in the outhouses of the West
From my Alaska trip: I flew into a small town that is not reachable by road, then hopped on a motorboat and drove across lakes and rivers for 2.5 hours to reach the scientists' camp way out in the boondocks -- out there they have a few rough cabins and a generator that makes electricity only in the evening and two outhouses -- and lo and behold, for reading material in the outhouses they have issues of the Economist magazines and HCN -- amazing to discover HCN readers way out there!
