Well, we won’t talk about that, but it was a great week.
The second best $24 I ever spent was my trial subscription to The Nation.
The magazine takes no prisoners.
I both anticipate and dread its arrival every week, because I know that, when it arrives, I must put my mind to work.
I fell behind reading it this month, so I took four issues with me on my trip the past two days and ploughed through them at the various restaurants where I dined (if you can call “Popeye’s” dining, but the “Captain’s Deck” sure throws a mean breakfast).
It is well-writen, tightly reasoned, based on facts, and easily the most intellectually challenging magazine I have ever read.
