New Yorker stories

ABC RN's Late Night Live yesterday had a topnotch program featuring several New Yorker people (check link or, better still, download the audio to find out more).

Earlier this year I bought the Complete New Yorker, which is an almost complete run of the magazine from its beginning in 1925 to February 2005 presented on 8 DVDs with an accompanying book of highlights. It takes a while to get used to reading the magazines on a computer monitor but it can be done with a little practice and patience. For people like me who have long admired the New Yorker for the elegant incisiveness of its writing and cartoons it is a treasure.
