Dear Professor Siegman,

As you can see below the glass is half full on this one.

I understand your criticisms very well BUT it is amazing that in this  
instance (as is often the case with Mathematica) if you have a leap of  
faith and list the desired result ->{Thick, Dashed} for the second  
line in PlotStyle then you are rewarded by getting what you want.

ListLogPlot[{Range[4], Range[4]/2}, Joined -> True,
  PlotStyle -> {Thick, {Thick, Dashed}}]


ListPlot[{Range[4], Range[4]/2}, Joined -> True,
  PlotStyle -> {Thick, {Thick, Dashed}}]

Best wishes ... Syd
