From Weekly to Monthly to Digital in Record Time

The Cover of an Issue Published
Less Than 1 Month After I Was Born

On Tuesday, November 4, the New York Times announced that U.S. News & World Report, a newsweekly magazine that always found itself in the shadow of Time and Newsweek (probably because is shied away from fluff), would become a monthly magazine.

No, wait!

Yesterday, the Washington Post announced that "U.S. News & World Report is getting out of the newsmagazine business and going all digital." (I think at least one adjective -- "traditional" would work nicely -- is missing from this announcement.)

What says U. S. News?

I didn't find any mention of the print edition on its homepage. But I was intrigued by this headline: "Ga. man cleaning with blowtorch sets house on fire."
