Indeed. I don't see Fashion Doll Quarterly there.

This is why some in the MSM have suggested that bloggers should be licensed by the government. After all, we wouldn't want any actual information getting out to The People now. Would we?

Yes the best way to keep up on current issues is to stick your head in the sand.

Which still puts us one up onthe current administration in Washington DC, which has its head up its ass.

Hey, when you gotta have a nibble, you need a large glossy magazine to guide you!

Wow man, that's deep.
OMG!! Brittney's NOT crazy!!! It says so right there!!! Quick, somebody call those quack doctors in LA!!! Call the judge, it's all a lie!!!

Thank God for you, Jon, without your eagle eye, an innocent woman would have been committed.

Um, are the war magazines and stuff on the other side?

W00t! Glad you're back! After your silence on the latest chapter of Harry Potter and the Unbreakable Bond, I thought we might have lost you entirely!

Toby Ziegler FTW!

And I'm sure they had a dandy array of newsmagazines in the store somewhere. I also have the sneaking suspicion that they were going for a pun on "Latest Issues," as well. But, still...

In a similar vein, I like to relate a story on a tangentially related subject more about the readership than the publications themselves:

A very long time ago now, I was in line at the Victory Market a couple of towns over from where I now live when I noticed the headlines on the tabloids. I don’t now recall which ran which set of articles. But between the Weekly World News and the National Enquirer we had front page “news” about how:

“A year after her death thousands worship Saint Grace” with photos and eye witness accounts of miracles and cures and all manor of amazing things.

On the other were reports that “A year after her ‘death’ Princess Grace is really living under an assumed name in (some Midwestern town I now don’t recall)” with photographic proof and eye witness accounts.

The woman in line in front of me bought both. When I chuckled at the conflicting headlines she explained “I want to know the whole story…”

To answer you question, the war magazines are on the rack this end cap is backed up to, on the side facing the window. (To the left in the picture.) Borders has a very good selection of magazines ranging from Mother Earth News to the coolest accessories for your AR-15 and everything in between.
