Aside

For a New New Yorker

So, the New Yorker has some good ideas and some bad ideas, but the magazine’s basic idea is a good one. Appealing to ‘affluent, young, college-educated urbanites’, it was for New York what Richard Steele and Joseph Addison’s legendary Spectator was for London. These days, though, it often peddles a thoroughly decadent culture, and is too out of touch with truth to be a medium for good. How about a new one, witty and urbane, but also wholesome?
