Because the ones I’m reading right now are “off the chain,” as the post-modern expression goes.
This must be the month magazine’s submit for the National Magazine Award, because the Sunday going-to-meeting clothes have appeared on the last Rolling Stone (excellent articles on the Pope and cover-boy Trump), and October’s Smithsonian (the Egyptian pyramids, Einstein, the Brazilian Gordon Parks, and Hemingway)! I’ve viewed Smithsonian as a wannabe National Geographic, but it does more than that. I especially like its articles on technological and popular culture history.
The October National Geographic promised and delivered on a lost city in Honduras, the Congo River, Sweden wilderness, sea wolves and, on the cover, a new link in the human evolutionary chain! WOW!
OCTOBER 15th UPDATE: Was happy to read this.
