How Good Can It Get?

Apparently there is such a thing as a free lunch, or at least a free magazine subscription. For now, donate $20 to one of the pre-selected non-profits and get a six-month subscription to this new 'zine. With a great mix of humor (Gary "I'm no Russian Debutante" Shteyngart writes about why he loves America) and political commentary (detailed maps show the crazy carvings of gerrymandering in this fine nation of ours) GOOD succeeds where most magazines about the good, the bad, and the ugly of our country fail. It's not too sappy or too earnest. It's not painfully, but downright artfully, designed. It's hip, but not so hip that it makes you feel like you've been holed up in a cave for a decade.
