I am always the last person on the planet to get the latest New Yorker:(

I thought I was the last one. Ordinarily, Lee seems to get hers days before I get mine. Annoys me because I'm only an hour and a half from New York, and she's 1500 miles away.  >:(

Well, I didn't get mine today, either. I'll let you know when it comes, and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Shit. That's hard.  :(

Well, I'm now reading the Oct. 27 article on "The Ebola Wars." It reminds me of reading The Andromeda Strain, and I remember the article from years ago, about that hemorrhagic fever that broke out among the monkeys in the research lab in Reston, Virginia. It's absolutely riveting and absolutely terrifying.

I STILL don't have it.

By the time I read "The Ebola Wars," Ebola will have been cured.

I'd contact Customer Service and complain.

I'll have to remember not to blab on about the latest issue until I'm sure everybody has received it. So, has everybody received the food issue (Nov 3)? This issue seemed strange because it was so focused on events within the U.S. borders. I'm not used to an issue where there is nothing about the Middle East or Africa. So far, I have enjoyed John Lancaster's piece "Shut Up and Eat" which launches the issue. We're in the age where we're supposed to laugh at ourselves for being so food-obsessed, which is okay except then we just go on with our obsession as normal. Not about food, but I also enjoyed the article about Bob Dylan's early work.
Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

I received the Nov. 3 issue this week, and I went directly to Adam Gopnik's piece on the cronut and the pretzel croissant. Cronuts don't interest me, but I'd like to try a pretzel croissant.
