What do we think of the new Atlantic design? In a vacuum, I like it. But back here in the time-space continuum, it strikes me that retro is never really a vehicle forward, though maybe here, at the end of history--after the universe has begun at least a metaphorical contraction and progress is marked by our ability to parse ever-smaller spaces-- staring hard across the diameter of some illusory cycle of culture has something to recommend it. At least this gerbil, we can say, has managed to build its own wheel.

I really like the print version -- not so into the online translation of it. But maybe I just need to get used to it.

Maybe it's the colors, but I find it very loud. It screams, in fact. I haven't seen the print version.
