As a reader, I have to disagree here. I notice the changes, but
usually don't feel it's necessary to comment on it one way or the
other, unless it's so bad I vote with my feet. I find the changes to
_U.S. News & World Report_ particularly alarming, since I see a
tendency toward the _Time_ and _Newsweek_ philosophy of news
reporting. Not quite bad enough to spend time writing letters, though.
