Larry and list:

I must take exception to your characterization of Popular
Science, by associating it with Popular Mechanics. They are very
different magazines.

PS has a long and distinguished history of science reporting for
the layman. One of the best articles on Area 51 ever printed
anywhere appeared in PS a few years ago.

PM, on the other hand, has been justly criticized for its
UFO-related articles.

I've read PS, PM, and Scientific American for 40 years. Believe
me, if or, when UFOs, ETs etc. are proven fact, you won't read it
in SA first.

Best Regards,
