It’s with regret that I’m not renewing my subscription to the Observer. It used to be my favorite weekly read, but since the resignation of Peter Kaplan as editor, it’s really become a husk of a paper. Rex Reed as the remaining film critic? I’d prefer no film reviews at all.
I got an offer for the Columbia Journalism Review, which looks good, and I think I'll bite.
Though I let it lapse for a year as I tightened my belt, I’ve picked up my subscription to the Economist, again. Times are still tough, but do I want to be as informed as Sarah Palin about world affairs? You betcha.
