    Rolling Stone used to be a fantastic periodical, but nowadays ...
    That's what I meant.

    Was a bit young to be reading the thing, back when they started, but I do remember being impressed with many wonderfully interesting music-related articles from the first five years or so. From time to time, they still have a few articles come through that are worthy of those beginnings. But, as you say, it's so overwhelmed (even swamped) with the "screeching" so typical of contemporary publications. Enough to make them irrelevant, by comparison.

    Unfortunately, the P.C. crowd has no use for Mad, and it has been losing popularity for a while. When President Donald Trump compared Democratic presidential contender Mayor Pete Buttigieg to Newman, the 37-year-old candidate had no idea what Trump was talking about.

    Goodbye Mad, and I loved it as a kid.

    [This makes me wonder to myself, what does Buttigieg know exactly? Nothing important really, he just seems to know stuff that does not truly matter.]
    [He is an empty suit of a man.]

    Isn't that what most incoming politicians are... Just empty suits. Probably can't find a well paying steady job as he has no skills and (if Bernie like) brings nothing to the table to convince voters he deserves to represent them.

    Some are so much emptier than others, and I think that Buttigeg is a real danger to America.
    I don't have a single good thought concerning him; but Bernie is just as bad. I think that both of them are very dangerous men.
