An Old Friend Returns - The Baffler


Now here is something that greatly cheered me up in advance of another tedious election season. The return of The Baffler!  


Back in the day this pesky journal emerged from the depths of Hyde Park, on the south side of Chicago. It featured - no kidding - some of the best political (and beyond) writing in the land. It has had an irregular print schedule in the past, but it never mattered. When I saw it in my mailbox I knew I was going to have some fun.
Anyway, it looks like they are now more solidly entrenched in the bowels of the MIT Press. With the roster of writers they've included in #19 it looks like they're loaded for bear.

Find that debit card, friend. Trust me on this one.
