    The Atlantic magazine was first published in 1857 as a monthly magazine. Like many print publications it has occasionally struggled financially, but it posted is first profit in a decade in 2010. In 2016 the periodical was named Magazine of the Year by the American Society of Magazine Editors.

    We have all seen articles from the magazine online in recent months, but I stumbled on a PRINTED copy of the April edition today at the school where I was working. Apart from the article about John Bolton being our best hope against Trump's impulses, the magazine always discussed the NUMEROUS "tallest in the world " skyscrapers that Trump never built.

    Here's today's edition:

    Both Schmidt and Jared started threads about The Atlantic magazine before I did, but I'm happy to say that I recently signed up for a year's subscription. Since I am a substitute teacher (I'm teaching by Zoom) I got the educators rate of $25 a year - and worth every penny.

    The November issue came in the mail today, and it contains a number of excellent articles. In view of the fact that it went to print before the election, it's astonishing how accurate the articles are.

    Barton Gellman, David Frum and Luis Alberto Urrea each wrote an article about the election itself, Mike Giglio wrote about right wing organizations like Oath Keepers, and Anne Applebaum wrote about the diminished role of the United States in international relations.

    If you get a chance, pick up a copy.
