Another One Bites the Dust: Radar folds

After COSMOgirl!'s folding back in early fall, I wasn't thinking of any particular publications that would be next-- strangely enough, I didn't think any would be. So I didn't see this coming at all. I was shocked and saddened to see that one of the smartest magazines out there today will no longer be in print soon. They've also sold their website to National Enquirer, and it will be relaunched in 2009 and probably be completely different in every way.

This sucks.
For those who were never clued in on Radar's greatness, the magazine was a very refreshing dose of intelligently satiric commentary on politics, pop culture, social psychology, sex, money and everything else we occupy ourselves with. Its articles were explorative and enlightening, but unfortunately, its audience was not vast enough and their skill in business needed improvement-- thus the fold occuring.

*Sigh*. Goodbye, Radar. I'll really miss you.
