Magazine review: IPMS/USA Journal Vol.25 #3 (May/June 2013)

The latest Journal is out.  This issue precedes the biannual national elections.  As such, it has the paper ballot as well as the bios for the candidates.  Unlike many years, one or two of the positions are contested, which means it is worth taking a look at who is running.

The issue itself is ok.  Not a great issue.  I suspect that the editors are having some difficulty getting submissions.  THe downside of being a volunteer publication is that they can only publish what they get.  Still, all in all, it is well worth the price of IPMS/USA membership just for the Journal.

Mark my words, this is going to end up being a real big story if CBS and the reporter continue to dig.

Sadly, this is probably really good advice.  You might want to print it out and keep it.

A year ago, I’d be disinclined to believe any part of this guy’s story.  Now, I am not so sure.

Wow.  Just wow.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen a country that wasn’t flattened by a war simply devolve back into third-world status.

Those crazy Canadians, underwear edition.

If I was rich beyond belief I’d get one of these in a heartbeat.
