Well THIS was a shocking visual as I clicked on the Mannionville Daily Bugle! My my.

I have to admit that I broke the Bugle's rule #5 -- because I am so tired I only *skimmed* the links -- and I didn't see any reference to you in those links. But, I'm assuming by your headline here that you sold an article to them.

Good for you! Sorry the issue didn't sell well.

But -- I have to say -- that cover shot is terrible. I think it's trashy -- not arty at all...

It's like Compassionate Conservatism put in print; big promises on the cover, and nothing but cold bitter print on the inside. I wonder if it's safe for work?



You've got to follow the links! I'm not giving Fence the free publicity because I sold them a story. In fact, I just got a very nice form letter rejection letter from them last week. What you need to read is Fence's editor's defense of that cover!

Alright. Alright. I'll follow the links! But, the only reason I would care about this is if you had an article in that pub! Like I said I already skimmed it -- but I am tiiiiirrred! (major whine!) Boobs and stupid people -- oy. But if you say I need to read it -- then I'll read it!


I'm sorry, but I can't get past the 100+ pages of poetry. The HORROR. The horror.

Well, it's a beautiful shot, but even after following the links I have to think that surely the mag could have come up with a better tit/lit connection. This babe was a donated image from suicidegirls and seems to have nothing whatever to do with any of the content inside the covers. The lad mags are much better about making up that kind of synergy.

Remember the good ol' days, when you could count on actual published authors like Tama Janowitz to cheerfully whore themselves out to the glossies?
