This week's SI (and Newsweek?)

    Opened my SI, with a great photo of Phelps and his 8 golds on the cover.

    Among my issue is 16 pages of Newsweek, accidently mixed in when they were printing, apparently: pages 1-8 and 63-70. Because of it, I'm missing an article on Liu Xiang, an article on the Cubs, and half of the article on Phelps. Lord knows what else.

    I'm guessing I'm not alone...

    That's what happens when you let a couple of magazines sleep together.

    You sure it's Newsweek? SI and Time are corporate brothers. Newsweek is a rival.

    Struck me as odd too, but then again would certainly be post worthy if true.

    Gannett just bought both and is expanding its experimental wrap-around mission.

    That was my first thought, too.

    Hell, I never got my Newsweek this week. Maybe those are MY pages!
  9. Last week's Newsweek, the one with Georgie Boy on the cover, was a double issue.

    Haven't opened the SI yet, though perhaps both were printed at the same plant and things got screwed up. Who knows?

    My SI was fine.

    It's only a matter of time until we hear that, because of the above mash-up mix-up, both SI and Newsweek have charged Tracy Ringolsby's credit card against his wishes. (Luv ya, Trace! :D )

    I hate double issues. They suck. My SI was fine, by the way
