I don't know why Henry does this, but he's been doing it for years, and no,
I'm sure he gets no personal benefit at all.
Predictably, I find these posts useless with respect to the mags I already
receive. I find them interesting and potential decision-forming when I
think about switching from one to another, or adding another to the list.
I hope nobody puts back issues out on the web, out of respect for copyright.
In the meantime, I'm sure Henry would be happy to continue to use
distinctive titles, so that those not desiring to read his summaries can
use the delete key.
