	I hate to say "I told you so" but way back in the PeaceNet
days, I wrote an article about the Fog Index, and how Quest's  was
so high that the magazine was in danger of dying for lack of a
reading public.  Looks like I was right.  I only wonder how it has
lasted this long, and why they didn't ease up a bit on the all the Ph.D.
phrasology.  Pd.D.s make a magazine respectable, but also so
difficult to read that the public (which has a 7th grade reading level)
is usually left in the cold.  The Quest is a great magazine, but clearly
not suitable for Joe Sixpack.
