Neal Lyons replied to Abram Herman's discussion How do you stay inspired?

Neal Lyons replied to Abram Herman's discussion CAM Reach study at The University of Arizona

Hi Abram,  I was really excited to see my comments about masseuse/masseur printed in M&BW!  I am curious - do you know what the circulation numbers are?  I'm going to send a copy of the article to my grandma and I'd love to be able to tell her how many people get the magazine!  Thanks!
