Reader feedback: Where's the news?

Dear Editor,

I'm sick of reading arms stories that hook me with sexy words like Al-Qaida and terrorism but deliver no information ["Police probe Al-Qaida arms links," By Tom Nicholson, Vol. 8 No. 7, February 25 - March 3]. A report of an investigation plus a few quotes linking some Russian to some Slovak is not news, even when beefed up by random facts about the arms industry in Slovakia. When will the Spectator write a real arms story?
