Let's read the Economist

Is there really any point in keeping up with what is going on in this world? My three year subscription to the Economist is coming to an end and I wonder if FHM will be more useful to me as the next thing I blow my money on.

Sometimes it's nice being away from the world (so, for example, taking a holiday in some secluded part of Wales) and coming back to find that so much has happened in the world and been reported in the news but you had no idea. Not knowing what was going on was strange and sometimes worrying. People would die and whole countries would come into being.

Then again, there are some things in this world that you find out but wish that you had used your time elsewhere. Anyone in the department with the fountains may occasionally feel this.

It's been fun having a reasonable idea of the randomness that goes on in this world but is it time for a change? FHM anyone?
