The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Magazine covers have been in the news, or close to the news, lately. I present three covers, and will let you choose which is the good, which is the bad and which is the ugly.

I was listening to Glenn Beck on the radio the other day and heard him say he was on the cover of Playboy. Something was not right. That just doesn't compute. Ah, silly me, his name is on the cover, not his picture.

Playboy trashed him. Rightly so.

To write a serious critique of Beck is almost a waste of time. After all,
the man has referred to himself as a “rodeo clown” and a “recovering

Last night I heard about Newsweek's cover, featuring Sarah Palin, with a shot that originally appeared in the August issue of Runner's World.

Palin wasn't pleased and wrote about it on Facebook:

The out-of-context Newsweek approach is sexist and oh-so-expected by now. If
anyone can learn anything from it: it shows why you shouldn't judge a book by
its cover, gender, or color of skin. The media will do anything to draw
attention -- even if out of context.

Newsweek did not do her any favors.

Finally, People magazine is out with it's sexiest Man of the Year. Johnny Depp.

I've seen some questions about why they chose this picture for the cover. But here you can see more pics of the sexy guys in People, including Depp. Oh, and read the articles if you like.

The best is People mag with Depp. Lipscomb Bohemian don't know good looks. Sarah is just a twit to me. Playboy has been around for awhile and if they said awful things about BACK he probably deserves it. He should be watching his back anyway with the way that he talks. I don't liston to him,I only hear some of what people say and write about him. I heard him one time for about 2 mins. and he was to loud and nasty.
