    It's in this week's issue. So I think it's on newsstands now. Or tomorrow.

    Do newsstands even stock the New Yorker?

    Quote:I don't know; it's been a long time since I've visited a newsstand. I bet Barnes and Noble has it.

    Regardless, I said "to heck with it" and subscribed to the New Yorker, and that gives you digital access to the magazine.

    What a great article! "Now that I actually have chickens-- seven, at least count, but that number, because of predators, is disturbingly variable-- I am the object of more pure envy than I have ever experienced in my life." Definitely worth the read. I'm sending a copy to my city council. [​IMG]

    There's a live chat with Ms. Orlean going on right now...and you don't need a subscription to take part. Go here if you're interested.

    Quote:Yep. People submit questions, and then the moderator picks which ones to use, and then she replies.

    Can't blame them for screening I guess, may as well avoid repetition and some of the really oddball ones... (or the people who have some kind of axe to grind) still, some pretty interesting questions and thoughtful answers! I think it was pretty good all in all.
