	Aren't most magazines aiming for their last edition but one?

	No one buys yesterdaze news, and it wouldn't be much skin off
their backs to put it up soon after the paper edition hits the garbage.

	The only caveat to that would be an international paper like Le
Monde -- being destributed around the world, it could take a week or two
for some editions to reach their destinations. In cases like that, being
off a few weeks would be 'ok'... I guess...  |<

	It would be MORE than nice!! We are DROWNING under a deluge of
capitalist propaganda masquerading as news! Look at that useless 'Paper
of Record' -- the New York Times (forget about TV..!)

	Not that Le Monde isn't run by capitalists, but at least they're
not the same lot 'doin' da deeds' to us as what owns the papers. At least
they, in their competition with OUR capitalists, have no ulterior motives
or hidden agendas which need implementing upon us...!

	All this might be a moot point -- Le Monde Diplomatique was not
available from that menu last night, nor were any of the other choices! I
assume the link was temporarily 'down'...
