The Atlantic, in general, has a lot of very interesting reads.
Mad Magazine was my supplement to Television for mischievous, childhood entertainment (sorry, gang, no internet back then!) I wasn't addicted to it or anything, but I really enjoyed it, to the point where I felt Cracked (1958-) was a cheesy substitute - I had no idea that Cracked dated back to the 1950s until just now; I thought it was introduced in the late 1960s (such is the mind of a child - there is no world outside their own immediate experiences). So I guess you could say I was a "fan" in the same way I was a fan of Star Trek, Twilight Zone, etc. (both of which I've only come to fully appreciate in the past couple of years). This thread about Pardoning Jack Johnson made an image pop into my head, which I found and attached to this post. I guess I kind of feel like that white hippy, and in fact my Google search was: "Mad Magazine identify with you, my black brother" because I remembered those exact words (which kind of shows you how silly I feel about myself sometimes). I thought there would be a one-in-a-million chance of finding just a comment about the issue; never in my wildest dreams did I think *the entire magazine* would be on the internet. It is *amazing* how much detail I remember about the issue - I used to read them, cover-to-cover. Anyway, while the screenshot of that one funny comic is on the Jack Johnson thread, the *whole Mar, 1972 issue* is right here! It's a monster .pdf file (almost 15 megs), so prepare yourself to do something else while it loads, and enjoy the memories. MadMagazine1972-03.pdf
I'm generally highly skeptical of any entity that proclaims itself 'best in world' at anything but this magazine launched in the US last year and does have some good photography. http://www.four-magazine.com Fair bit of pretentiousness (they talk about "targeting readers in the A/B bracket" who "enjoy a luxury lifestyle") as well as some interesting content. One of the major sections focuses on "Chefs" with maybe a couple hundred listed from around the world. For DC, no Ruta, Trabocchi, Wiedmaier, or Ziebold. No Cooper, Furstenberg or even O'Connell. But, Andres is in there. He may be the only one. They have an adjudicated "Rising Stars" foursome for each continent. Here in North America, no mention of Silverman or Friedman. Not sure if I have any use for this yet. An initial skim was both a tad interesting and pretty annoying.
