[QUOTE=bitonti]hey 5ever I have been thinking about the National Review standing offer - what do you think of this...
You buy me the National Review and I read it -
I buy you TWO bi-monthy subscriptions: Mother Jones and Mental Floss.
financially i think these are comparable expenditures, even though the national review is bi-weekly (i think)
Sure, whatever you think - I'll read whatever you suggest...that's the deal. We each have to read them for a year, for balance. NR has a deal now, actually, where it is half-price for gift subscriptions, so it's only like $30 instead of $60. It is a bi-weekly magazine.
PM me the mailing address you prefer and I will set you up. I'll reply with the address I prefer.
BTW - I read your last "economics" post - it was good and thoughtful - clearly you have been reading more and more about things, which is good. I plan to reply, but need more time than I have presently since you brought up several complex topics....
[QUOTE=bitonti]all told you are only going to get 12 issues in a year while i will get 24 but it took me a while to find 12 issues that i wouldn't be embarrassed to make you read - so let's just go with that -
Mother Jones is very serious and liberal (and some would say whiney and negative) but Mental Floss half their stuff isn't even political - i think one balances out the other nicely[/QUOTE]
I trust your judgment Matt. Whatever you think. Looking forward to it.
