Mini-Rant: The New Yorker

The New Yorker‘s website Table of Contents is really painful to scan because they put the various authors’ names before the titles of the articles. Writers’ names should never be more important than the content of their articles. Am I supposed to scan down the page and only read articles by authors I know and like? It’s maddening and it makes me feel like I’m supposed to know these peoples’ names, which in turn makes me feel like a Philistine.[1]

Just look at this mess. Click the link and scroll down about halfway to the Table of Contents.

1.) This is something at which The New Yorker excels. I suspect I am not alone.
