My copy of the Australian Journal of Mineralogy arrived today. I use the term arrived loosely.

The good news. One of my photos is on the front cover!

The bad news. In spite of the address cover sheet clearly saying DO NOT FOLD, it was bent double and crammed into my mailbox. I am currently trying to flatten it out again. There are scuff marks on both front and back cover that won’t come out though.

Clearly it is no longer a requirement for postal delivery workers to be able to read.

I have lodged a complaint.
