I realize that my need to win arguments with Megan McArdle is self-indulgent and unhealthy, but watching all these hacks laugh at Harper’s made we want to retch.
I mentioned to McMegan that the Atlantic was only breaking even and that that was possibly only because of the “salons” its owner runs. She claimed I was confusing the Atlantic with the Washington Post (which also runs, or was planning to run. similar “salons”), I gave a google link.
Not very exciting, I realize.
