Nina !

You are NOT alone ! Got mine yesterday and opened it last night at home. That 
was
some TOUGH glue. I guess I wouldn't mind it so much if they would EASILY come 
out
(as I have seen some do in other publications, etc.) but there was one (probably
the one you hit) that it was ALL I could do to NOT tear the page to get it 
out...
Agree - you'd think with the bag, they could just stick them in it. Of course
this is ALL about add space and placement ($$$$$$) so don't expect to see
anything change; unless it is "less sticky" glue !!!

Was sort of funny though. I had peeled the inserts out and gotten the glue off 
of
them. It was balled up and on the arm of my chair (awaiting my trip to the
trashcan) and my 3 year old cruises up and sticks his finger in it and says
"What's dis daddy ?". I said "Boogers". He yells, says "Oooo gwoss, dats
disgwusting" and shakes his hand wildly and flings it off. I then explain to him
what it REALLY is (under the "watchful" eye of my wife <G>) and he started
laughing...
