I'm a huge New Yorker fan, so I wanted this soooo bad when I heard about it—however, every review makes it seem less and less appealing.

John Atkinson just emailed this link asking, "Have you blogged this?" Well, no—although I do believe I emailed it to him back in ought-three. Disirregardless, it's a good'un.

As the May issue was being put to bed, the Internet was all aflutter over a proposal by digital strategy consultant Jim Griffin to have Internet Service Providers (ISPs) levy a $5 surcharge—a "network licensing model"—on all broadband users. Under this model, Griffin proposes that ISPs collect the fee, which would then be paid into a pool to "compensate music-copyright holders." Griffin says that consumers who do not download digital music files would not be forced to pay the surcharge, but that he anticipates "70–80% would pay" for all the content they could download.

I got wishbone in my pocket
I got a rabbit's foot 'round my wrist
You know I'd have all the things these lucky charms could bring
If you'd give me just one sweet kiss, rowr, rowr, rowr
Baby, I ain't askin' much of you
Just a big-a big-a hunk o' love will do.

Gee, that's funny. I bought the same thing, only mine is shaped like a house.
