I recently returned from a long vacation to find a stack of magazines including five issues of C&EN. I was pleasantly surprised. Wit has improved greatly in the front and back portions of the magazine—in the articles as well.
Letters, however, still seem overly predictable—in my experience, chemists are a bright bunch, and I would hope for better.
Newscripts may be the last page of C&EN, but it is the first page I read every issue.

Newscripts has gotten me in the awkward habit of reading print magazines in reverse direction. With my degrees in food science and analytical chemistry, I find these fun tidbits a nice connection to the science I love—chemistry.
