Policy leaders of the world, take note: readers of the March issue want you to pay attention to critical issues. One such concern mentioned by letter writers centered on the ways in which we elect candidates, in response to "The Fairest Vote of All," by Partha Dasgupta and Eric Maskin. Another priority--how we will avert environmental ills brought about by global warming--was raised by James Hansen's "Defusing the Global Warming Time Bomb." Details on reader reactions to those--and other articles in March--are on the pages that follow. But letter writers may also take note of this chestnut: "You can vote for whomever you want, but the government always gets in."
