A read to look forward to each week

April 10, 2008 - Steve Murch
I subscribe to Newsweek. I received for a number of years, let it lapse for a couple of years, and now receive it again.

The problem with newsmagazines is many of the stories can be dated. Big news stories usually are covered endlessly in print, on television and the Internet. Access to the news isn’t what it used to be when those magazines had their peak circulations.

Keeping those stories fresh and finding an undiscovered nugget is work. They’ve all done a pretty good job of adapting and doing more enterprise and in-depth coverage.

Like all newsmagazines, Newsweek has stories on the arts, money, etc., and columnists to complement its news and enterprise stories.

What draws me to Newsweek is most of the of the “extras” like Periscope, Conventional Wisdom and My Turn. Periscope and Conventional Wisdom are more editorial matters. My Turn is where citizens write.

The topics in My Turn can range from work to health to family and everything in between. All have a personal message and related to dealing with life. Some are funny, some insightful, some sad and some introspective. All provide a look at some aspect of how people deal and cope with life.

If you like stories on the human condition, you’ll enjoy My Turn in Newsweek.
