Shorter was better.
SALLY ANN LEDERMAN, WAYNE, N.J.
Several readers have complained about articles being longer than in the pre-redesigned Science News. In fact, article lengths have not substantially changed. Nearly all features now are in the same word-count range as in the old magazine, except for "Story One," which is actually a shorter feature at the front of the magazine. With occasional exceptions, news stories are generally about the same length as in the old magazine, or shorter. The short "Of Note" articles from the back of the old magazine now appear with other news articles as short stories, photo captions or briefs, often shorter than before.--TOM SIEGFRIED
