Say Hello To My New Issue of North and South Magazine

My subscription to this magazine couldn’t run out soon enough. You can imagine my surprise when I read this in Keith Poulter’s “Editorial” column: “We switched printers with the last issue and failed to make clear that the magazines should continue to be mailed to subscribers in polybags.  As a result they were not bagged and a number (about a dozen) were damaged in the mail, necessitating their being replaced.  As subscribers will already have noticed, this issue was bagged and this will be the case with all future issues.”  I can report and as you can see, THIS ISSUE WAS NOT BAGGED!

    I stay far away from this magazine, in large part because of the horror stories I've read about here. Your post title made me laugh…I thought of Scarface.

    Mine was. I live in Canada so there may be a different method of handling foreign maiings.

    I don't know if it is me, my computer or the pictures but they are backwards….now that would be a serious flaw in the new printers job.

    I know your problems with the mag, but there have been a couple of good articles by my former graduate advisor and friend William G. Piston in recent issues.

      There have been a few, but overall the magazine continues to suffer.

    Looks like the bummer got ahold of that thing!

Now that you've read the post, share your thoughts.
