[Excerpt] In his December 27th column. Stanley Turkel criticized Gary Thompson's response to the criticism that the Cornell Quarterly is too academic. In a survey, a significant percentage of readers of the Cornell Quarterly said that the journal was either "a little" too academically oriented (47.4%) or "for" too academically oriented (12.4%). Dr. Thompson did not interpret this finding as negative, instead saying that "if the CQ tilts a bit toward the academic, that is intentional, even though its articles are meant to be useful for practitioners as well as researchers." Mr. Turkel seemed to take issue with this response, suggesting that it was akin to saying "don't bother us with your viewpoint about the Cornell Quarterly. It will continue to be too academically oriented no matter what its readers want."
