Samir says

Samir says: It appears that every thread of my weblog is converging into one post: my running coverage of Samir Husni; my head-scratching about magazine concepts that make little sense; and my post yesterday about the inverse relationship between hype and importance. So here is a link to a Newsday story in which Samir makes the perfect quote (“pie in the sky”) about Radar, a magazine concept that makes little sense, yet is receiving the kind of hype that guarantees a slow but eventually painful failure. (Immediate failure is much less painful as it is much cheaper and everyone can quickly get back to their lives.)
