To the Editors: I wholeheartedly applaud your decision to "bag" the bag. I have become increasingly concerned with the number of journals mailed in plastic bags with apparent disregard for the environment and the abuse of the natural resources required to produce these bags.
I hope the decision of the Annals will encourage other publishers to eliminate plastic mailing bags and to use acid-free, recycled paper.
