The Cultural Wasteland

How is it that Borders, which stocks an enormous display case full of magazines, sells Serial Killer Magazine but not The Economist?

The irony here, of course, is that I generally don't care one way or the other about The Economist, but there's a cover article that might be useful for La Dissertation, so I wanted a paper copy.

LOL, that was my first reaction too - so - is the magazine for Serial Killers -how to, tips on not getting caught and so on, or is this one of those studies of Serial Killers - what's new in the world of catching them, profiling them etc.

I guess there really is something for everyone out there.

Unfortunately, Serial Killer Magazine is a magazine for fans of serial killers. I think they have a website, but I really don't feel like linking to it.

This is something I could really rant about--dumbing down of the population via sensationalistic pseudo-journalism.... So I'll limit myself to just rolling my eyes and gritting my teeth.

I guess there's a niche for just about everyone out there in magazine-land.

Serial Killer Magazine????? That really did deserve italics and multiple question marks.

Yes. Yes, it did.

And, yes, it exits, I'm sorry to say.

I gues Serial Killer moves more copies than The Economist.

Will a photocopy of a library copy of the Econ. issue be enough--or have you found another source by now?

I gues Serial Killer moves more copies than The Economist.

Which is kind of worrisome.

But don't worry. I just trundled myself down to the local independent bookstore, where of course they had The Economist, so I got my copy there.
