I have just picked up this magazine and read your article. On page 18 you say "In summary the scientific literature is self-correcting though corrigenda and though reader comments." Both times you left out the r in 'through'. I'm assuming you did this deliberately to see how many readers corrected you to find out what the rate of reader correction is. So consider me as bumping up your stats by 1. Maybe you have hidden other 'mistakes' in there, but I didn't spot them.

About once a month at Sigma Xi headquarters, we liven up the lunch hour with an American Scientist Pizza Lunch talk. In these informal lectures, scientists describe new research to nonscientists. The series is light on jargon but heavy on solid science. Each Pizza Lunch offers an in-depth look at its subject, whether it's bedbugs or the smart grid.

JSTOR, the online academic archive, now contains complete back issues of American Scientist from its inception in 1913 (as Sigma Xi Quarterly) through 2005.
The table of contents for each issue is freely available to all users; those with institutional access can read each complete issue.
