Sorry to squelch a potential sale, but $20 for a 15 year old National
Geographic is INSANE! There are several used book stores in the Columbus
area which sell old NG's for about $1.00 each (including this particular
issue). True, it is sort of hit-or-miss whether you can find the issue you
want on the day you visit. True, not having to search yourself means you
will pay a little more for "value added." I just think that a markup of
2000% is excessive. Most dot-com stocks in the 90's couldn't even match

My $0.02
