Re: New Leader Di Neumeister 25 Mar 1996 14:38 UTC

I thought New Leader's publication statement was more amusing than
frustrating until I started trying to figure out why my prediction
pattern (we have Horizon) for New Leader was so different from the
actual issues received by the end of 1995.

I discovered that New Leader had changed its publication pattern every
few issues in 1995!  Just get out your issues and look at that little
paragraph in each one: every one begins with "Biweekly except..." but the
exceptions keep changing! (And no, it never even comes close to being
truly "biweekly.")

Maybe the publication statement should include, "Publication pattern is
subject to change without notice."  ;-)
