Every issue that arrives, the next day at breakfast I scan through all the cartoons. If there's anything that even garners a chuckle out of me, I pass it over the table to Significant Eater.
There hasn't been much passing lately.
But I did read to her (yesterday) the 2006 Nora Ephron piece entitled "My Cookbook Crushes," and we laughed heartily at a few of the late Ms. Ephron's observations.

Somebody searched the archive, so I don’t have to!
That issue seemed a bit pointless. If you subscribe, you can read the entire archive. Some of the pieces I knew.
The weakness of the cartoons started a year ago pretty much exactly.

Also, proof that I myself am a great cartoon editor, because a piece I commissioned from the wonderful (Brooklyn-based) Hilary Allison was just republished by The Nation. First one here.

Love the Edward Gorey cover on this week's issue (to go with the article on Gorey inside).
