Looks like you beat me by two hours, John. I just saw this in my email and came here to post about it. I'm glad you got here first -- I was just going to write a quick comment, but your presentation is much better.


Thank you!  :-*

I'm surprised no New Yorker reader/Downton Abbey fan has mentioned the back cover of the Jan. 4 issue, "The Dowager's View of the World."  ;D

With all that I've had going on of late, I just realized that I haven't gotten a magazine since the issue cover dated Jan. 4.  :o  I need to call customer service.  >:(

Coincidentally, that's the end-subscription date on my mailing label.  >:(

A couple of months ago, I need to update my credit card information for automatic renewal. I couldn't get the web site to work for me, so I phoned customer service. I bet that's what has my subscription screwed up.  >:(

I didn't receive this week's issue yet (cover date Feb 1). I am feeling put out about it because R. received his two days ago and is ahead of me in reading!

Well, I telephoned Customer Service at The New Yorker this afternoon, and, indeed, my subscription had been canceled--and Customer Service could not explain why or how. My subscription is to be restarted, though I won't see an issue until the one to be cover dated Feb. 22.   >:(

Question for you New Yorker fans:

Who is/are the writers who cover music/culture for the magazine? I have a pretty big classical music event coming up, and I think they might be interested.

Alex Ross seems to be the main writer on classical music right now, if I remember correctly.

There's also the "Goings on about town" section, of which the Classical Music subsection comes first. I've noticed that there are quite a few more opera events mentioned lately. For things going on outside of NYC, there's the "Above & Beyond" section. It says to address all editorial and other correspondence to The New Yorker, 1 World Trade Center, New York, NY 10007 and more information is available on the web site at newyorker.com

I have tried and tried to read the latest fiction by George Saunders called "Mother's Day" but I just can't finish it. Saunders covers the strange lives of suburbanites a la John Updike but there is just something so. . .mean spirited about it.
