The Magazine Horde: Ben McGrath's Talk of the Town piece on magazine horder Patrice Lumumba Moore is nice work. I particularly like the crisis management guy who helps people deal with "abnormal clutter" (we call those people interns around the MT offices). Even better--the gratutious swipe at other Conde Nast properties (Vogue, Lucky) who seem to be inflating their circulation numbers by not actually charging subscribers.

But Ben nevers lets us know what we're all wondering: in that massive horde of magazines, were there any Carter-Anderson era issues of Spy magazine? When they get rid of Moore's clutter, we want to be there to pick up the good stuff.
