Thin and thinner

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.
