Barnes a Million

So I don't order the magazine, I usually pick it up off the racks at one of two book stores in Pensacola. Either Books a Million or Barnes and Nobles.
Well... used to, as they no longer carry it. Luckily Skeptical Inquirer is still carried, but it's getting harder to find out where they've put it on the shelf.
Especially now as it's been moved to either the very top shelf or bottom shelf, top row.


So... upshot is I'll be getting a subscription now.

Yeah, I can't find any skeptic magazines at all, anywhere. Even stores dedicated to nothing but magazine sales. They can manage to sell Wood Carving and Bowhunter well enough, but is it really the case that no one wants to buy skeptic magazines around here anymore??

Some of the titles I've seen while searching for skeptical magazines have made me seriously disappointed in the human condition.

I agree with you, Gord.

Plenty of gun magazines. Plenty of astrology magazines. Fashion magazines by the ton.

However, Skeptic, Sky and Telescope, Skeptical Inquirer, Discover, National Geographic, Smithsonian, Scientific American, and Psychology Today about exhausts the offerings for the person who wants to feed his/her brain. I may have missed a few...but not many.

It's very sad...even depressing...but perhaps not unexpected.

We did, after all, elect Donald Trump.

I didn't! I voted for...hmm, I don't actually know who I voted for. Oh wait yes I do, it was Blaikie! Daniel Blaikie.

And I cannot think of another magazine either.
