3. Thanks! I think the halo is silly.

But for being worthy of ridicule, I gotta go with the Time cover.

4. The pics tell the difference

I don't know what to say about the Time cover. It's deliberately provocative and more than a bit weird. How many women allow their three year old son suckle? This isn't front page news.

As far as Newsweek is concerned, the pic is great; the text is an outright lie. Yes, this is probably deliberate provocation. But if I were the big boss, I would call the editor who approved it into my office and ask, "Do you know what you've done?"

I would give the editor a chance to explain. Then, no matter what the response was, I would say, "You're fired. Clean out your desk. You have ten minutes to get the hell off the premises."

5. they are both really stupid and trashy

 

but the Time cover takes the cake. The depths this so called "Magazine" has sunk is beyond comprehension. It will be a good day when it goes bankrupt sooner or later. Not sure if many people would notice though.
