  1. Would a dead pool for magazines be in better taste? This morning I got a postcard announcing that Cottage Living is no longer publishing, and the remainder of my subscription is going to be made up with issues of Southern Living.


  2. I was one of the few people to subscribe to Linga Franca (back when I had spare time and more concern for culture). When it went under, I got a nice apology letter, which was more than I expected.

Until somebody makes a Kindle that can take a drop on the tile or a bit of water, I’ll never completely quite them.
