Mr. Publisher, Tear Down This Wall!
Don't Know What You've Got 'til It's Gone

Corrupter of Youth

I discovered the National Lampoon in its second issue back in 1970, in my tender and formative years. I shudder to confess how much I learned, or believed I was learning, about the adult world from its pages. (I also shudder to think what those old issues would be worth now on E-Bay, but that's just spilt crême fraiche, isn't it?)

These fond memories come rushing back as The Onion interviews P.J. O'Rourke, including a long look back at his years with the Lampoon. Trust me: it was a Golden Age of Humor.
