After some serious probes, I discovered that, at least within the time and means immediately available, the difficulties of exploiting such sources were insuperable with one happy exception. Nevertheless, I firmly believe that the research possibilities awaiting us in such relatively private, confidential files are vast and staggering. 9 The investigator needs only sufficient time, perseverance, and perhaps charm and funding to discover who has what and how to win their confidence and cooperation.
Research Strategy No direct precedent for this study is known to exist. 1 This fact compels more than normal care in designing and explaining its modus operandi. If an axiomatic belief in an ongoing, fundamental reordering of human sensibilities and social arrangements is accepted, there are at least two large classes of geographic phenomena that might flow from such change. Firstly, it is conceivable that, given the erosion of conventional social ties, heightened personal mobility, ready access to advanced modes of communication for business and pleasure, and thus the effective annihilation of space, at least in its familiar frictional guise, there might arise a superficially random array of individuals.
At this juncture, I hasten to reassure the patient reader that our data have not been qualified out of existence. Despite major blemishes and shortcomings, much that is new, provocative, and significant emerges from this laboriously constructed body of statistics. When data on the total adult population and aggregate membership and readership for each state are arranged in order of descending ratio between these two quantities, the outcome is at least mildly surprising. 23 Evidently, magazine reading and the vicarious encounters of an association substitute, to some extent, for face-to-face social contacts among widely dispersed populations.
