I think it's annoying when The New Yorker has articles about figures from popular culture, such as would be appropriate for Vanity Fair. I was just reading one that made no sense at all to me as the (self-proclaimed) 'huge' comedy team is comprised of four people I've never heard of. It could've been a spoof article.... nah... Anyway, that kind of crapola is not the reason why anyone reads the NYer. I used to enjoy popular culture but now it's boring to me; I understand the appeal I just think it's better contained in its own areas.
