Why is Time magazine still pretending to be a newsmag? It might as well call itself "Disease Weekly" these days. The preceding, of course, was a rhetorical question, prompted by the standard cover-story articles of the past year. All the editors must be going through a hypochondriac phase. A Google search on "disease weekly" found "Skin Disease Weekly" up near the top, evidently a webzine only; motto: "better hygeine through horror." On the more "legitimate" portion of the disease weekly spectrum are to be found Heart Disease Weekly, Digestive Disease Weekly, Infectious Disease Weekly, etc., etc., etc.
