I LIKE the personal stuff interjected into the magazine... It makes the writers and editors of the magazine feel more like real people, and less like names in print, delivering their opinions from on high. Oh, BTW - I like Motorcyclist magazine.
I dunno EJ... 14 comments so far for Boomer the cat, and none for the two motorcycle articles above it... Which were posted 1 and 2 hours after the boomer article, so have had PLENTY of time to have been read and commented on.
