I absolutely abhor this new setting of BIB. I can't look at a glance at an article and figure out whether it's worth my time to open it up and read it whole. Please....PLEASE!!!! Do something about this. I had BIB as my start page on my browser precisely because it was so convenient. First thing in the morning, BIB was my eyes into the world of immigration law. Now, I can barely see anything. It's not practical. Please...pretty please????

I agree completely. I don't have 20 minutes to explore you web site. I want to be able to scan short pithy summaries and click on the items I am interested in. This shoud be the stuff that is sent automatically every day. Links to other items can be included if a person has the time and interest to follow up. With the pressent format, I might look at in once a week, if then. Be aware that this revision does NOT sit well with me.
