A magazine for the ages

By Megan McArdle

Thanks muchly to Stuart Buck for the pointer to this gem.

From Dr. Boli's alphabet of occupations:


J for the Journalist, chasing a story,
Following up every hint, lead, and clue:
Not for the fame—no, and not for the glory,
But only because it’s the right thing to do.
No, she won’t quit working until the sun rises:
She’s making our planet a much better place.
Of course, if she happens to win a few prizes,
She’ll modestly smile and accept with good grace.



The genius behind it deserves some kind of award, but I fear greatly for his sanity.
