                            Special-interest publications should realize that if they are attracting enough advertising and readers to make a profit, the interest is not so special.

                                    Very few people possess true artistic ability. It is therefore both unseemly and unproductive to irritate the situation by making an effort. If you have a burning, restless urge to write or paint, simply eat something sweet and the feeling will pass.
