Steady on

The RW is a ringers' paper. It is also run by a small team on a pretty tight
budget. We can't expect it to become a historians magazine - and we should
do our bit to provide good copy (and pictures) in the form that the editor
requires it. Asking him to look at it on the web isn't on, because in effect
you're saying to him "this isn't really for you, but you can use it if you

I happen to think that the historical coverage in the RW has been and is
pretty good. It's a significant element, and there's been some good stuff.

We all take the paper for what we see in in for our own interests, and as
long as there's something for everyone with reasonable frequency (and
quality) then none of us should complain
