Nothing special to report about the PT at this point except that we are looking into ways of saving printing costs at this time of financial difficulty. Although decisions have not been made at this point, we are not planning to reduce the size of the PT or combine it with the GN.
I would like to take this opportunity to quell a rumor. I have heard from several sources that it is rumored that "half the PT staff quit." Actually only one person quit — and that was in order to take another position outside of the Work. I was obliged to lay off several of our writers and researchers, however. George and Carole Ritter, Paul Graunke, and Scott Rockhold were all terminated.
We are again planning an "introductory" copy of the PT for new subscribers. We have been working closely with Boyd Leeson and Roger Lippross on this and the issue will be produced on a test basis very soon (pending Mr. Armstrong's full approval of copy and layouts, of course).
