blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: American Profile Magazine

American Profile Magazine

I don't understand why this "magazine" is in the Messenger every weekend (other than my guess that they pay to be placed in the Messenger every weekend). I think it's geared towards the AARP crowd (no offense to the AARP crowd, by the way). But I'm skeptical of everything in it. Case in point: This week's "Ask American Profile" included a question from Eryl Burnworth of Phoenix, Arizona. (Eryl?) who wanted to know whether his "favorite comedian" Rich Little was still performing. Rich Little? Favorite comedian? Apparently Eryl hasn't watched TV since 1975. Anyway, the magazine's response pointed out that Little "recently released a DVD called One's A Crowd, which is available at www.richlittle.com." Spare me. If the production company behind Rich Little didn't pay to have that letter placed in the magazine, I'll buy the DVD. I won't watch it, but I'll buy it.

I stopped my subscription to the WCM shortly after this magazine insert became a regular feature. Why? Cigarette advertisements. You don't see that in most other newspapaers.

I miss the old variety shows.
