I’ve had a print subscription to the Economist for a while, though off and on.

I grew weary of having piles of unread issues stare at me, as though reproachfully, until I learnt the (obvious) answer: these are not meant to be read cover-to-cover!

Anyway, I happened to have two recent issues lying on the table side by side, and there was something … I don’t know … a bit parenthetical about it.
