Dear GYA, I'm so bummed that Newsweek will stop its print edition at the end of the year. Now where am I gonna find creepy cover shots of Michele Bachmann, what Princess Diana would look like if she were old (and alive) and stories about how heaven is real? Damn it, I guess I'm gonna have to find something else to do when I'm bored out of my skull. Well, anything happening this weekend as informative and entertaining as Newsweek? - Frank Sausage, Park City
