This week's paper was written really well; however, I could immediately ascertain that a different writer had written this paper because there was some minor formatting errors that needed to be corrected. Also, I had to re-write a couple of sentences, but it was not anything major to request a revision for. Overall, the paper was good, but I would like to see consistency in the papers regardless of different writers.
