Hitting It BigWhen I got the March/April issue, the thing that caught my eye immediately was “Red Sox Nation.” I live for the Sox, especially this time of year. I even take my radio and headphones to Bingo so that I don’t miss a game. One night when Papi did what he does so many times — hit a game-winning homer in the ninth — I got so excited that my arm went up and I let out a not-so-quiet “Yes!” They thought I’d hit Bingo and stopped the game. Oops!

Fits to a “T”

It’s always a joy when your latest edition arrives at the house, and now more than ever! Not to worry: I can find Ms. Clark’s column wherever you choose to put it, and I like the new paper you’re using. Further, I think the new size is a stroke of genius. Being a male 78-year-old, I never did tuck away my copies in my purse, but they seemed to get lost among my stack of grown-up-size magazines. If Henry Ford had given up tinkering, we could all still be driving a Model T, so I say keep tinkering. If the old saying “if it ain’t broke …” were really true (if you can stand another “if”), we’d still be using carbon paper. Nice work, Yankee!

Misguided Effort

Mr. Allen, it appears you have lost the essence of Yankee. You must not be a true New Englander, for I believe what you have done to Yankee Magazine is terrible. It would have been kinder to lay Yankee to rest with a proper eulogy and rename your new publication The Interloper. Your “new” approach is akin to what invasive plant species are doing to the beautiful, diverse landscapes of New England.
