one of the reasons i'm letting my

National Geographic subscription lapse. i've been noticing without understanding the recent forays into politics in this august magazine. that's not what i buy the magazine for.

If I were you I'd drop the Washington Times, (owned by Sung Myung Moon) and keep the Geographic. Its ok to disagree with an article now and then, but it is still an august publication. (Although I have always considered NG to be popular geography rather than academic geography and I personally dropped it a number of years ago, primarily because my own interest is in urban geography and land use issues and they kind of got away from that and started doing to many underwater photo spreads and wild animal photography) Geography is more than maps and ethnography. It is inherently cultural and political. Always has been. Geographers have a long and honored tradition of being involved in politics. Check out this url. http://www.politicalgeography.org/ I think you will find some interesting links. Also the USGS and NOAA websites are pretty neat. E
