My mother would tell you I've been reading The New Yorker magazine since before I could read. In fact, I can't remember a time when I haven't had a subscription. I love that, in this electronic age, The New Yorker has given many of my favorite social commentators their own online homes. Andy Borowitz -- comedian and writer -- casts a wry eye on the news of the day, and calls out the powers that be when the world gets a bit skewed. The Borowitz Report arrives like magic, in my inbox, and almost always gives me my first laugh-out-loud of the day.
