Hi Linda,

Here at F&M, we literally cut the two issues apart, and they are kept
separately on the shelves.  If you go to where the 2 issues are back-
to-back, open the issue(s) there (lay flat on a tabletop) and apply a
little pressure.  You will then be able to see the glue between the
two issues.  I then use a utility knife and slice right through --
the spines get a little mangled, but it works.  We bind both titles,
so we only have to look at the spines for a short time.
