Borders and Barnes are great places, but I've heard personally from at least one other publisher that they take to big a bite out of the cover price for them to make any money at all. Thus, the loss of our paper aikido mags. And now JAMA, too. Alas!

Journal is now subsciption-based only

Shucks. Print media is slowly going down the tubes.

That's intertubes to you, buddy!

As for me, I guess I'll have to get a subscription now....

I like Barry Eiser's books. It would be neat to read the article, but I haven't got the wherewithal for a subscription right now.

This is all to funny - the whole time I thought the article was about another JAMA. (The Journal of the American Medical Association.)
...well, up until I saw that it was the Asian Martial Arts... ;)

Was wondering where the medical slant to Aikido was going to come in. :D
