From the catalogs of babes

{August 1, 2009}   Dear journal editors,

Dear journal editors,

Please do not take almost a year to read and review my manuscript and then ask for a revision in six weeks. I understand the level of cat-herding that must be involved in the peer-review process, and do not fault you for your length in responding. However,  you can’t for a minute believe that it would take such significantly less time to actually do work on the paper than to simply read it and offer a few comments, can you?


Someone who has other things to do with her time in the next 6 weeks
