The folks taking the Washington Post buyout package are signing off with final columns and pieces this week, my favorite of which is Peter Carlson's. He's the guy who, for the last 12 years, has covered magazines for the Post. Remember Brill's Content, George, Spy, Sly? He knew and wrote about them all. But what I like best about his piece is that it manages to condense into this great little read both a farewell and what's so cool about the fascinating and ever-changing world of magazine publishing. And he does it with humor and non-saccharine nostalgia. If you love magazines, and great journalists who have become casualties of our new-media age, check it out.
