From a this-is-how-a-magazine-gets-put-together piece in The New York Times:
Last week, for the June 1 cover, [People editor Larry] Hackett had four possibilities, including an exclusive interview with Bristol Palin, accompanied by photos of her in a high school graduation robe holding her baby.
"We're also on Farrah watch," he said. "At this point Farrah has to die. It's the only cover left for her." ...
Over the weekend, Mr. Hackett made the final cover call. There was no news on Farrah. "Out of my control," he said.
Well, you could try smothering her with a pillow, you ghoul. Yeesh. Perhaps it's best that I work for a tech magazine. At least we're not on Steve Jobs Death Watch.
