Very disappointed to see the PA magazine overtly publishing a political point of view that has absolutely nothing to do with archery. Page 3.

This has been discussed quite a bit on here since that issue came out. 
I started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left

The newest issue has a nice write up from Ed apologizing for that garbage you speak of Joachim. Ed is the new EIC and promises we wont see political garbage again. The folks at PA need to remember they sell issues around the world and other than being a wordly political laughing stock, those folks don't care about our politics.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.

Pearl Drums- Ed has been the editor for years.  He isn't new.  Mike Moore was the magazine president.  It was his letter that was published.  He has since resigned from Primitive Archer to pursue other interests.  Monroe the publisher has stepped in to the position.  This magazine is a family run operation for the most part.  We have appreciated the responses and letters sent to our editor, Ed Ingold.  We, the folks at PA, have responded with kindness and with grace regarding this issue.  We appreciate if everyone follows suit.  We appreciate the continued support from our subscribers. 
Sincerely,
Marie

I've decided not to re-up.  I don't want to start a debate or reopen a can of worms.  Instead of resubscribing, I donated that amount to an environmental group.  Just a gut feeling I have about the future.
Yeah, I remember when we had a President who didn't wear a tinfoil hat.

You will be missed, but what a great way to take that money and put toward good.  Pay it forward.  Thank you for sharing your choices.
