go get a subscription

to Harper’s magazine. The August issue, for example, has an excellent article by Wil Hylton on the spread of Hepatitis in U.S. prisons and what correctional HMOs are (not) doing about it; a very funny article on the Vidocq Society, named after the 18th century French criminal/detective/writer (one of my dad’s favorite crime writers–he named our German Shepherd after him); and a sobering article on the nature of dissidence by Edward Hoagland. Oh, and it also has excerpts from rent-a-negro.com.

    It really is outstanding. Weird coincidence: I just subscribed a month and a half ago.

    Forgot to mention the personal connection: Jay Kirk, author of the Vidocq article, is a pal of mine here in Philadelphia. I’m sure he appreciates your plug!
