Your memory is better than mine. I would have sworn I picked it up from you!  :laugh:

I wish it were possible to open all the pages at once and do a search so we'd know for sure who deserves credit in the history books.  :laugh:

I don't think so. I've long had that feeling about articles I thought of as important but boring. As I recall, you gave them that snappy name.

I don't think I need finish the Oct. 26 article about Eugene Scalia basically destroying O.S.H.A. I imagine Biden will throw him out on his ear.  :laugh:

The new NYers are coming in fast and furious! I get one, set it aside to read when I can, and before I even have a chance to pick it up here's a new one.

That's my situation exactly.

I looked at the latest issue's ToC yesterday and only a couple of the articles looked tempting. I'm going to try to stick to the ones in whose author or subject I have genuine interest and skip the "duty" articles

That's what I'm going to have to do.

Also, I'm getting rid of all the pre-election NYers.

I love it when some decisive historical change makes old NYers obsolete. It's the main reason I voted for Biden.

Also, I keep up with a fair amount of TV and movie news just in my normal online life. Not that I always, or even usually, watch the shows, but I'm at least dimly aware of their existence. So why does the magazine so rarely review shows whose titles I even recognize?

When I get seriously behind, I put away the stack of old NYers and start in on the latest one. I save the unread NYers for a snowstorm or when I'm sick. Also, I'm getting rid of all the pre-election NYers.
