Sorry, Mr. Pickell. We all experience slow page loading on our computers from time to time.
We turned the problem over to our IT people. This is their suggestion: "For those who have slow dial-up connections and don't want to wait so long for an e-mail message to download, the solution is to order the text-only version of the newsletter. The e-mail message will then load much faster. Readers can request the text-only version by clicking on the "My Profile" button on the navigation bar within the newsletter and changing the setting to "text-only" rather than "html".
We hope this information is useful to Mr. Pickell and other readers, and that we may soon count him again among our audience.
