Coming soon: HCN on glossy toilet paper

Document Actions

As I read Ray Ring's words on what is the right format for HCN, I began to ponder that the correct mix is the mix that keeps you and your staff energized (HCN, 7/19/10). Without an engaged editor and staff, the publication will wilt. The rest is just packaging that can be adjusted. Sources of in-depth coverage on any subject are few and far between these days, and coverage of the issues dear to the West is slimmer still. Publish on toilet paper or full-size glossy, but keep the fires burning. It would be a tragedy to lose another ray of light because the cosmetics of the rag didn't please everyone.
