I don't do magazines except for Reason and Running Times.
Sign up for Google reader and subscribe to feeds like I do. Listen to NPR. You will know everything. (And I get the Economist in Google Reader.)
I may be alone on this, but I find The Atlantic to be superior to the Economist. Fewer articles (it's a monthly), but you get more intriguing, comprehensive reads there. Check out the Blackwater article from a few months ago on their website... awesome stuff.

I say NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC.
Is that the one that the terrorists read.

You better get to bed. Your paper route comes early, junior.
Think of the amount of time you spend watching the news, reading the news, or listening to the news in a year. Now think back 4 or 5 years and name 20 important things that happened. Good luck. The news is a waste of time unless you really need some water cooler talk.
