        Well, drat, stole my thunder... I got this early this morning, but thought I'd need to wait and ask Mr. Weider before I posted it. That's some groovy news, though! AIRBORNE!!

          Hopefully with the new "adult leadership", these WBTS magazines will provide a fair and balanced story of the war, instead of one-sided yankee propaganda that made me quit reading them years ago, in abject disgust.

            By all means, if you have suggestions for these magazines, you will have a direct feed to the Supreme Commander. This is as good of a place as any to start the feedback.

              Very nice

              I think it is safe to say we now know what Erics surprise was that he referred to a week or two back. This is excellent news and I am glad to be a small part of it.

              Kudos to Eric for keeping it under wraps and aquiring some great magazines. ACG just got a little bit better and bigger. WOW
              Im kinda giddy with excitement!!!

                  I've given away tons of Civil War Times and Military History magazines that were my dads. I'd eventually get around to reading them but the wife was harping on the bags and bags of magazines.....with the boxes and boxes upon boxes of books I have I decided the magazines had to go.

                  Nice news for Eric. The tie in with Weider Health and Fitness is new to me. Learn something new every day.

                  FYI Major H's idea of buying Avalon Hill from Mattel sounded purdy good.

                      I was remiss in not putting my congratulations in my first post. I think it's a great thing and am very pleased to read about the acquisition.
