      "I give up"

      The New Yorker just keeps getting worse from week to week. The articles are now of three types: Fluff that would be better off in People magazine, boring examinations of subjects that are of little to interest to anyone outside of Manhattan and politically slanted pieces that are intended to make a point. In addition the narrator often makes mistakes which he then corrects and the editors can't be bothered to remove the mistake. Bye, no more subscription for me.
