And There Will Be Nothing To Read During The Apocalypse

Friends, weep for us. At least three horsemen arrived in my inbox in the last hour or so. First, the WaPo killed its Sunday stand-alone book review section, Book World (smarts particularly on the day after we lost John Updike, a lit-crit great). Second, Domino magazine, one of the greatest design magazines ever, has folded. And now, it looks like the U.S. Postal Service might have to cut one of its mail delivery days! That's right, neither snow, nor rain, nor heat nor gloom of night stays our mail — but the friggin' economy? That's another story.

R.I.P. Domino. I just barely learned my Biedermeier from my Thonet. Plus, you gave me my favorite summer recipe.
