Ordinarily, a publication like Psychiatric News could be a big part of the solution. However, the fact that it is not a timely publication removes much of that potential. The articles tend to cover material that is quite old by the time the publication reaches us, often several months old. And the letters column sacrifices much of its potential for immediacy and interest by rarely having the kinds of interchanges that such columns usually contain. (For example, for a letter that comments on a recent article, how about including, "Psychiatric News responds. . . .") In a time of increasingly instant communication, the lack of timeliness and interactiveness becomes more and more salient and more and more of an additional turnoff.
