CAN YOU GET THEM TO LEAVE OUT THE CARTOONS?:

Let go, yet hold on: The complete New Yorker -- on disc? It's too good to be true. (Mimi Avins, July 14, 2005, LA Times)

The New Yorker magazine has announced that its complete 80-year archive will soon be available on eight computer discs. Some people found this development interesting. But to many, many, many others — and you know who you are, hoarders of America — the idea of being able to own eight DVDs containing every page of the 4,109 issues of the weekly magazine published between February 1925 and February 2005 was life-changing. Here, from the wise and benevolent goddess of technology, was a solution to an all too common stuff-management problem.

it would be worth it just for Roger Angell, E. B. White, James Thurber, Joe Mitchell, and Berton Roueche.

You can get the cartoons, which is the only worthwile part of that wretched leftist rag, on a disk with a book that displays them all.
