I get the impression that the U of C Magazine has
not only become physically thinner, but that its content has also
been considerably diluted. Where there used to be discussions
in some depth about the significant work being done by members
of the faculty, we now get cartoons and comic strips and superficial
articles about what's happening on campus. Case in point (one
of many): a brief article about the gay and lesbian exhibit at
the Library, instead of something in detail about what the GLQ
program has found.
Until recently, I felt that the U of C's alumni
magazine was head and shoulders above any of the others I've seen.
That, unfortunately, is no longer the case. It has descended into
the mob. I hope this is only a temporary situation; the University
of Chicago alumni deserve better.
