We that read this (these) magazines are already involved in some way or other with the living tradtion. We already know about the field that you are writing about. We can be critical. We know it all. Yachtsmen read sailing magazines. Golfers, golfing ones etc. You get my point. It still, mostly, makes good reading. We want to read about what we are interested in. EDS covers most of it. Some articals are good, some not so. Matter of taste. Like some cd's. There's good and bad. Really, what it boils down to is, that it's there. I remember other folk magazines. Fred, ran one for years throughout the seventies. Just as good. We absorbed all it had to offer. As we do EDS. All editors have a horrendous job pleasing everyone. You know that one. "You can please all of the people some of the time" etc. Dave Arthur also did a good job for years and years. Keep it coming. Where you put it is after all up to the EFDSS. It's now on line so that's a plus.
