    <-NARRATOR:-> Listen to a conversation
    between the two student editors of a photography magazine called Campus Photo Monthly.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> We're in trouble, Barbara.
    I don't think we can put together next month's issue.
    There just aren't enough good photos.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> [Complaining] It's getting harder and harder to put together an issue.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, and this month is the worst ever.
    I don't get it. I mean,
    students are submitting lots of photographs, but
    I think we've only got fifteen that are worth publishing.
    And we can't print the magazine with only fifteen photographs.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well, maybe we're being too selective.
    What if we used photos that maybe aren't great, but-
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> -but that aren't horrible?
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Right. I mean, some of these photographs we get from beginning photographers may not be the best,
    but, if we lowered our standards just a bit, we'd have a lot more photos to publish...
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Sure, but we'd have to be careful.
    We don't want to get a reputation for publishing low-quality work.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well...[pause, reflecting]maybe,
    you know, maybe we're just publishing too frequently.
    What if we stopped publishing every month, and instead, you know, if we just published every two months?
    We'd have a lot more submissions to choose from so we could pick and choose and still publish only the good ones.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> I guess. But people on campus sorta' expect us to publish every month.
    I mean, we are Campus Photo Monthly, aren't we?
