It's getting better all the time

  As a longtime subscriber, I have observed a marked uplift in the artistic level of the photography used to illustrate articles in the past year or so. The Oct. 30 issue was a new zenith, with two articles illustrated by Jared Boyd, "Just Another Giddyup" and "Peace Breaks Out in New Mexico’s Forests." The photos, especially in the New Mexico article, are exquisitely beautiful and illustrate the complex issues with sensitivity and subtlety.
