I used to have a subscription to The New Yorker, but then the same thing that happens to everyone else who gets a subscription to the New Yorker happened to me: when I got it I leafed through to read the cartoons, made a mental note of the articles I really wanted to read later, ignored the magazine for two weeks while I derped around on the Internet and watched TV, and then was racked with guilt when the next issue of the New Yorker showed up.
Oh, really? Fine, then I guess you’re better than me, Your Majesty.
Someone who does have a subscription and can read the online version, tell me if what I suspect is true is really true: The New Yorker greenlighted this thing back in April when it looked like Fuld was going to have a whale of a year and now, when he’s back around his historic norms (i.e. fourth outfielder territory) it seems a bit weird that a big fancy magazine is doing a feature story on him.
