I myself would like to see a "photo-spread" of some of the antique stoves that have graced our homes over the yrs.

Boy what paranoia. What's your evidence of the government squashing any publication? Coal Age magazine is published by Mining Media International, 11555 Central Pkwy, Jacksonville, FL 32224. It publishes about a dozen magazines all related to mining. Absolutely no evidence the magazines can't publish anything their subscribers and advertisers are willing to pay for. It's a world wide trade magazine covering many topics in many countries.
How about contacting one of their editors and suggesting an article about antique stoves? They just might be thrilled to hear from you and learn of this forum.
