I don't think the everyday working Joe reads Popular Mechanics
or Popular Science, but it will most definitely make the
existing readers more aware.Unfortunately the magazine made
cigarette ads look more appealing and even as I, as a 'ufo
enthusiast', flipped through the magazine, I found I just
flipped past the UFO segment like it was filler with nothing
much to say really and went on to the Technology Watch section
to find out more about nanotechnology, mutant frogs, space trash
worries, and Mining Water On The Moon (pg. 32).The cover lost
it's momentum being surrounded by 'Create a Killer Website',
'Drag Racing Runs Wild', 'Plant Heirloom Seeds' and 'Buy a
Riding Mower and More!', but 'UFOs' does get your attention.
It's good for the collection.

And be sure to check out

for the latest in disaster-resistant buildings.

>OK, 6-cents worth.

Is that before tax?

Happy reading.
