Ann Althouse ducked into the library to escape a rainstorm the other day and picked up a copy of the Utne Reader—a magazine she says she loved thirty years ago and hasn’t read since.
Her conclusion, reading it now? The “Utne Reader is not a young man’s world—or a young woman’s world. It feels like an old person’s place. I felt too young for it . . . and I’m old. Or it’s for those other aging Americans . . . the lefties. I see these people in Madison all the time. Do they feel left behind? Do you think the day will come when “lefty” will seem to mean left behind? ”
Of course, this is an older reader’s reaction to much we loved when we were young. Où sont les magazines d’antan?
