Remember the magazine that dared to show a nursing baby on its cover? It got a bunch of prudish people up in arms when it came out in July of 2006. Well, the cover was a finalist for Best Service Cover of 2007 by the American Society of Magazine Editors. It would not have been given any award consideration at all if it hadn’t been made such a controversy.
I know the price has always been low, but I don’t think I can pass it up this year. We just got a letter from the National Geographic Society offering a year subscription to their magazine (12 issues), a world map, and a “100% guarantee of your satisfaction” for $12.00. Unless you live in Kentucky. There it’ll cost you an extra 6% sales tax. I will pass on the obvious Kentucky joke. But I think we’re getting the magazine. I cut up many an issue from my parents’ stash for grade school reports, and I’d like a big heap of them for the boys to look through some day. (It’ll cost you $15 on the National Geographic subscription site.)
