I agree. My 2-cents worth is this.

Anyone who wants a quick-and-dirty guage of the PS/PM readership
should look at the classified ads at the back.

I don't have a copy handy, but remember jewels like " Elijah
coming before Christ", endless get-righ-quick schemes, "train to
be a locksmith" etc. I'm sure you can find even better ones!

PM is not exactly the IUR, and PS is no Scientific American.

If there is any benefit to this, it might be a slight rise in
public 'UFO consciousness'; the perception that there may indeed
be an issue worth discussion, even by everyday working Joes who
would otherwise not give UFOs a thought.

OK, 6-cents worth.

Best wishes
