Woah! The interior layout is more-or-less the same -- still bass ackwards -- but the cover ... new typeface, and no big picture-in-a-circle!

I thought it looked phallic enough to be one of our Photoshopped sample

Got mine yesterday and the first thing I thought was "Oh shucks I hope they didn't read everything we had to say about Planning magazine on here."

Did any of you get that random survey that the APA sent out a few months ago asking about improvements to their website and Planning magazine?

I haven't recieved mine yet, so I will reserve comment until I get it.

Brian,
Do you just keep a few Hustlers around in the office for whenever you need to scan and post a cartoon?

Umm, don't you get the magazine with the membership? I haven't even gotten one yet. Still waiting to reap the benefits of paying dues...

Yeah, but I usually save them for the washroom. Wait, that sounded bad.

That could be a new thread in itself -- What is Planning was more like Hustler?

Ok, I got mine today. It is a nice change on the cover, but an 8th grade art student could have came up with that. Plus, the content still sucks.

At this rate, the magazine will kick ass in 2045.
