Magazines still come in the mail. Even if more people look at them online during the week or the month. There’s new content being put up on their sites all the time. Hard to keep up. You really can’t keep up, which is one of the causes of our anxious culture. Magazines in the mail can calm that a bit. They have a start and a finish. You can complete one and you can see by the way the pages have wrinkled and softened that you’ve done something. The most recent New York Magazine is good from start to finish. The excellence of the cover story on the lasting effects of the crash of 2008 by Frank Rich is why you read magazines in the first place. Look for it at the newsstand, or the library. Or on their--I have to admit--irresistible, if way too much to absorb it all website.
