Letter from the editor.
We put out a call for articles. We got a couple on menopause, at least one on menstruation, a breast cancer article, lots of various pieces on the complex issues of women's bodies. Since we received nothing about men, we went actively looking. How about an article on circumcision? One on male emotional health?
The circumcision piece was scheduled but didn't come through. The writer who helps sensitive new age guys get in touch with their masculine side was too swamped. Nobody came up to the plate on prostate health. Finally, out of desperation, we pleaded with our esteemed ads manager, one of the few male members of our staff, to get serious amid his joking suggestions of how-to articles on jar opening and taking out the trash. Bill, what do you really want to read about men's health? His answer brought us our token men's article in this issue, and it's a good one. (Many thanks to Michael Winn for coming through for us on short notice.)
If anyone wanted to explore the intricate differences between the male and female psyches, the plethora of articles we received on nurturing the female body and the single piece, by request, on male sexual health speak volumes about feminine and masculine priorities.
Generalizations aside, we hope that this issue provides new information and reading pleasure to people from both planets. Enjoy it in good health!
