sorry, it's a half-assed issue...
The managing editor was in Atlanta this weekend and other things came up so there's no reviews or feedback. It's no excuse, I know I know, just merely an explanation. Heck, nobody even sent a "what's in your player" list. (So keep those lists coming!) A full issue is guaranteed next week or your money back. In the meantime, go look through March of 2001. That was a great month. Reacquaint yourself with some old stuff.
