Yesterday I read that the New York Times had run a story on the long and continued life of Tiger Beat. The problem was that they had included a cover of the magazine (above) that wasn't real but was instead a spoof by The Onion. The Times subsequently noted the error.
Not a big story. Kind of funny. But my main thought was, "They still publish Tiger Beat?"
Then last night the Second Grader In The House suddenly posed a critical question to me: "Did you know Justin Bieber had a a little sister?" For proof she walks over to me with a magazine in hand ....... yep, it was Tiger Beat.
That was kind of weird for a magazine I hadn't thought about in over thirty years.
