Now, those guys are nutz! Have you noticed that the magazine has a bunch of stuff in it either written by or about their forum regulars. I hate to say this, but I think I may be getting too old to keep up with the "in" crowd on this forum. Funny stuff, though.

BW, this mag. is totally wacked out. It's purely about writing, and most of it is completely over the top. Really smart people write for this mag. and the style is strange and obscure. It's snotty, condescending, progressive, hilarious, and smart. I love some of it, and some of it really pisses me off. I can't think of a better home for your writing style - I'm not kidding.

It only has two issues per year. The cover of every issue reads "FIVE BUCKS. TEN BUCKS FOR BAIT FISHERMEN." Kind of funny.

Well, that pretty much eliminates me.

And I bet it took you the whole 24 pages to come up with the new definition. Cracked up-LOL. I think Gil is right-you would fit right in there.
