Old Chinese curse: May you live in interesting times.
By John Long
I’ve seen Elvis at 70 on the cover of the Weekly World News; I’ve seen James Dean as an old man too, usually while I am waiting in line at the drug store where they sell the tabloids; I’ve seen Alfred E. Newman as President Bush. Princess Diana at 50? No big deal.
But wait, this is Newsweek. When did they become the reincarnated Weekly World News or the National Inquirer or the new MAD magazine?
