I was especially moved to read that Evan Smith, the editor in chief of Texas Monthly, had disclosed how poorly a recent cover had performed on the newsstand. Speaking as an EIC, I can tell you we all have those dirty little secrets, and usually that's just what they remain. Maybe we'd all be better off if we did more sharing and caring with each other. And maybe we would be able to spot certain media trends earlier, so that we could all jump on them together with greater speed and agility. At any rate, I felt as if I should also get a few things off my chest.
