Timeless cliche

Timeless cliche: This week’s Time and Newsweek covers are not official “2004 Clone Covers,” (See Clone Covers, 2003, for an explanation). However, this week’s cover illustration for Newsweek reminded me of an ancient Time cover. Here they are, side-by-side, I mean, back-by-back.

Time: July 14, 1980
Newsweek: April 25, 2004

(Note: I would not have remembered the 1980 Time cover were it not for some back surgery I had during that era which led me to read everything I could find on the topic. Secondly, I am quite proud of myself for making it through this posting without even one use of a pun related to a certain body part.)
