What a Drag!

I just discovered last night that the slow leak we had in the kitchen sink leaked through the kitchen floor to the basement below. Unfortunately this was exactly where I was storing my issues of Skeptic (I had a complete collection starting with Vol. 1 No. 1) and Skeptical Inquirer, with the result that nearly all of the issues I had been saving have been destroyed by water and mold. I am now, with mask over mouth, removing all the issues and dumping them. Too bad -- I had planned to donate my complete collection of Skeptic to the local public library.

You MUST order every back issue to rebuild your collection.

It's an omen! A sign to let you know never to question God or Sylvia Brown! Repent!

I would hope these back issues are available in digital media by now.

I am skeptical of this claim. A suggested theory is that a certain someone, perhaps significant other, wants more storage space in the basement.

Perhaps Mr. Shallit, in order to avoid an action (throwing away skepticsm magazines) that would bring into question his skepticism, for a "True Skeptic" would never toss away a collection of Skeptic magazines, Mr. Shallit has brought forth the excuse "mold ate my magazines" to assuage his guilty conscience.

Nice try, Math Man.
