A Magazine Worth Reading

I have had a subscription to World Magazine for many years. Over the last three or four years, I have noticed a very significant improvement in both its coverage and the depth of its analysis. It has become, along with the WSJ, a must-read for me.

I direct your attention to the February 24, 2007, issue as an example. The cover reads, "Into Captivity They Shall Go", Modern-day Slavery on the anniversay of William Wilberforce and abolition. This issue contains a chilling map of the world that shows "Slavery around the World". A magazine subscription will allow you access to the publication's archives, where the articles from this issue now reside, or you may be able to subscribe just to the on-line version. I would recommend the magazine.

By the way, it doesn't take much imagination to link the pornography that is available to anyone with an internet capable computer, man, woman or child, with the slavery in little girls in Cambodia that one of the articles discusses.
