Re "Idea rich, postage poor," Opinion, May 28 Teresa Stack and Jack Fowler correctly note that small magazines "have an outsized effect on public discourse," yet their commentary ignores the substantial editorial discounts enjoyed by all magazines.

Then there is Martha, whose magazine is both. But there is a hard core of dedicated food magazines still devoted to food, each in its particular (not to say, necessarily, peculiar) way.
