Magazine trend story?

Magazine trend story? These three items have hit my in-box the last couple of days:

(1) “Muslim Malaysia has banned 40 books and magazines published in Britain and the United States deemed to have unsuitable sexual content.” (Agence France-Presse)

(2) “A district magistrate in the capital, Islamabad, ordered all copies of the 22 November issue (of Newsweek) to be destroyed. The issue contains an article about murdered Dutch film-maker Theo Van Gogh and pictures of a woman with Koranic verses inscribed on her body.” (BBC)

(3) “Kuwait yesterday launched an investigation into a Shi’ite magazine that caused an uproar by allegedly insulting Islam. Information Minister Mohammad Abulhasan said the Lebanese Al Minbar magazine, which was being printed illegally despite being banned since 2003, was blasphemous.” (Gulf Daily News)
