The new year brings a change to this magazine. This sometimes weekly, sometimes biweekly herewith firmly becomes a biweekly. It’s a good move. It will save postage and, since our intention is to have as many pages as before, there’s no loss in value. Readers tell us that they cannot keep up with their daily and weekly mail and find that receiving weeklies sometimes adds stress to their biotemporal being. I agree with the change and expect that most readers will, too.

My fellow editors, who are clear, direct, frontal, practical, American and deliberately unfancy, will bill the magazine as an unpoetic “biweekly.” And, of course, I will bow to necessity and go along with their choice. But I announce that from now on I am going to think of it as: The Christian Century. Fortnightly.
