To get me to not read something, just put it in PMLA. The May 2013 issue in particular, I should want to read as it is all full of Latin American and comparative things, but I do not.
Is it the two-columned print, or the sophistry? I am sure there are things of value in this journal, but I am usually bored by it and it is not just the two-columned print. I will donate this journal issue to my student, and immortalize its table of contents here.
