You Gotta Be Kidding Me

Updated: Apr 15

Needed: A mercy killing

The perenially woebegone Oxford American magazine — which I noted earlier is experiencing financial difficulties that should be surprising to no one because it’s a goddamn literary magazine that for some reason is still being published in the 21st century and who the hell reads magazines any more anyway — has found an enabler angel.

An unnamed donor will pony up $100K to help  this absurdly anachronistic and unnecessary publication, which everyone talks about but I’m sure no one actually reads, to pay its tax liability and stay afloat for a little longer. What on earth is it going to take to put this sad little vanity project out of its misery? Seriously, it’s well past time to just let it go.
