                        The topic affects a lot of people.  My mom has diabetes, so I can really relate to this story.

        (2) Newspaper and Article Selection: 7 Points (0-10)
                        Article was terribly long, not to mention boring.

        (3) Quality of the Editorial Comments: 9 Points (0-10)
 

        (4) Organic Chemistry Content: 8 Points (0-10)
                        Not much of a link to organic chemistry.  Almost anything is a chemical and has an IUPAC name.

        (5) Selection and Quality of the Links: 19 Points (0-20)
                        Good links, especially the Government agency links.

        (6) Format, Number and Types of Questions: 10 Points (0-10)

were very relevant to organic chemistry.

                We thought the links were too boring and didn't pertain
toomuch to the article.

                                                    8 points awarded. Would have like
                                                    to seen more chemistry in the

                          (4) Organic Chemistry Content: X
                          Points (0-10)
                                                    8 points awarded. The article
                                                    obviously contains a lot of organic
                                                    oriented issues, however, these
                                                    were not addressed directly in the
                                                    editorial.
                          (5) Selection and Quality of the
                          Links: X Points (0-20)
                                                    15 points awarded. There are a
                                                    couple good links that really
                                                    provide the reader with additional
                                                    chemical information. The
                                                    remaining links, however, are very
                                                    general and do not aide in
                                                    strengthening the article.
                          (6) Format, Number and Types of
                          Questions: X Points (0-10)
                                                    10 points awarded. Questions
