'Time' Magazine Now 23 Cents an Issue

Here you go: 84 issues of Time magazine for $20. That's ¢23 an issue. That's the "special offer" that arrived in yesterday's mail. Oh right: plus a "weather station clock." I'm sad to report that I actually am the kind of crank who sort of craves having one of those clocks. I like to know when the barometric pressure changes!

But wait, there's more wonderful bargains in magazine world!
