The New Yorker

I love The New Yorker. However, I've noticed that everytime they do a fashion or style issue, the number of advertisements rises significantly. And I'm wondering, is there someone over there who has this dream that The New Yorker could become the next Vanity Fair where some really good stories are enveloped in a sea of advertisements.

I know the profit margins for these kind of journals are smaller than ever these days. But I like The New Yorker as it is and I think that most of its readers do to. I can deal with the ton of ads every now and again for a special issue. I just hope that it stays every now and again.

Or maybe I'm just a crabby old man before my time.
