Americana in the best way.

The Saturday Evening Post was a great part of my early life when I spent my nights in the cool attic at my grandparents' home. This was in the 1940s, well before air conditioning and an era when a two-story house had an attic above with windows and floors. A wonderful library for a new reader was the great stack of Saturday Evening Posts Grandpa had collected.

As I spent my pre-sleep time in that great place, I would browse through the magazines. Of course, I started at "Post Scripts," and as my reading skills improved, I found there were stories in there. Slowly, those stories caught my interest, and my reading skills began to develop. Truly, you helped me learn to love reading.

I am glad to once again read your magazine and hope you will include more of the fiction you had before. I am still a fan of Mr. Botts and the Earthworm Tractor. I remember the cover paintings that described Americana in the best way.

I am not too happy about the latest cover because it has lost the sense of the usual Saturday Evening Post meaning, but at least you are including the best of them inside the magazine.
