Hey Jonesy, I'm paying your salary

    Worth the few loonies I'm paying.
    Seeing the pic of Jones in the hospital was priceless.

    Fifty cents an issue? Jesus. Good thing I have twelve months to save for Christmas.

    Here's the great, lasting shame of my life: I don't have a subscription to Esquire. I used to get it to read Pierce, but now some Canadian dickhead is hacking away in that space, so fuck it, I figured.

    And patchs, that picture cost $47,110. Hope you enjoyed it.

    You can read it when I'm done, if you pay for postage...

    Jones, I had cut back on magazine subscriptions dramatically a while ago to save money--down to the New Yorker, New York Observer, The Atlantic Monthly, SI and ESPN, as well as my school's alumni magazine, which is surprisingly good.

    But then I got a $4 or $5 offer for a year of Esquire, so I subscribed. About a week ago, I got the December issue (the one with the George Clooney article you wrote in 1952). The thing was beat up to hell--just shredded on the way to my mailbox--and I had read half the shit in it online. Then the VERY NEXT DAY, the January issue arrived. I realize I only paid enough per issue to feed a starving African family, but I still feel like I was ripped off with that December issue, which the library has had on microfiche for months collecting dust. Can you do something about this my friend?

    EDIT: Seriously, the Mailer stuff alone--I had already read the profile online, but still--made the price of the full year more than worth it.

    Where can I find the pic of Our Man Jones in the hospital?

    If I didn't know and like Jones, I'd cancel if they got rid of Klosterman and Junod.

    The Norman Mailer article by Junod last month was unreal.

    Gotta love the discount subscriptions, though ... I just bought three years of ESPN for $9.99 on ebay. No free MP3 player, though ...

    You sure that's legit? His head doesn't look big enough and I'm not sure she's a real nurse, though she does seem to have a good bedside manner.

    Is that US or Canadian $?
    That must have been one helluva gallstone!

    Frank and I disagree about Klosterman.
    But I discontinued my subscription a while ago. I like the magazine, but I felt cheated. They never kicked me down any swag. I subscribed for several years and all I ever got was paper wheel that had cocktail recipes on it. Kick me down a Women of Esquire calendar or deck of cards.
