    Has anyone picked up / received the new WT yet?

    Isn't that usually the one with the annual totals in it? I have not been to the KH in a couple weeks and was just wondering.

    Do you mean Jan 15 2006, Jan 2005 is old light by now.

  • blondie

    In 2005 it didn't come out until the February 1, 2005 issue.

  • stillajwexelder

    And it has been announced that from now on will always be the February 1st issue

    I guess they need a little extra time to make bad figures look good.

    I know they started last year with Feb 1st for the world report.

    Any one know the reason why?

    Seems strange that for decades they could do the world report for Jan 1st.

    But now in this number crunching computer age, they need an extra month.

    I honestly believe that they want to phase out statistics - and you're seeing the beginning by taking them out of the January issue.

    The excuses for this were completely lame - that a few countries couldn't report on time after decades of being 'on time' AND

    the emergence of the internet, fax machines, and satellite communication, as well as better phone service in much of the

    third world, including cell phones.

    They see what's happening to the numbers and understand the need to fade them out - and then make bogus claims about

    glorious expansion, even if none exists.

    Sorry !

    Yes, I meant Jan 15 2006, NOT 2005.
