Great gift idea ~ The November 2011 issue of Rolling Stone is, as typical, bulging with timely, interesting, and well-written features–check out Florence and the Machine, George Clooney (cover story), and a great article by Rolling Stone’s political correspondent Tim Dickinson on how U.S. tax policies have increased economic inequality. Link to hear the Terry Gross interview with Dickinson on NPR.
Every member of our family loves reading Rolling Stone. I purchased a subscription for our son for Christmas about five or six years ago and then we would all go searching for it in his room after he had finished reading the latest issue. Of course it’s available online, but nothing equals curling up with (the physical manifestation of) a good book or magazine–besides, it gives your eyeballs a break from the computer’s glare.
