My father and I carry on a regular exchange of periodicals. For some reason my housemate has an unwanted subscription to Rolling Stone. I don’t read it, but my dad is a huge fan (it’s a generational thing). So I mail him every issue of Rolling Stone in exchange for his old issues of The Economist (their viewpoint aside, it’s an essential publication). So we each save some money and even a little bit of paper on the magazines we want to read.
When I saw the cover of the most recent issue, however, I actually had to stop and crack open the magazine before stuffing it into the envelope—to read this:
The article isn’t news to us here at RAN, but it might be to a lot of people like my father who might never have heard about the downside of agrifuels. Good on you, Rolling Stone. But, with all due respect, I’ll still take my sharp British economic analysis over stories about washed-up hair bands.
