    Did not think it belonged on Journalism Board, but this is still a loss of a longtime publication. We mourn papers calling it quits, and some mags, too. Here is one that probably is one of the longest.

    All went downhill when the womenfolk started worrying about votes instead of quilts.

    They're like the Negroes. You have to ask yourself if they might have been better off.

    They're throwing in the towel with 3 million readers and $152 million in ad revenue last year? WTF?

    My understanding is that they're going quarterly and the magazine will be produced by a special sections group the company owns in Des Moines.

    So they're really just dumping eight issues plus the high-priced staff in NYC. I'd imagine the cost savings will be pretty immense.

    I would look through my mother's LHJ and Redbook when I was a kid after reading National Geographic and my father's Outdoor Life. Sounds like LHJ is making a smart decision to go quarterly.
