Review: 'September Issue'

The magazine rack at 7-Eleven doesn't have many real magazines. No Economist, Vanity Fair, Discover or the New Yorker. It's mostly pseudo-magazines, about celebrities, diets, video games and crossword puzzles. Except for one: Vogue. The other day I bought the September 2009 issue, which ran to a little under 600 pages. That may sound like a lot to you, but actually it's a marker of hard times for the economy.
