Off the Radar, For Now

Speaking of Gawker and the New York media world -- but only briefly, I promise -- check out this post about the folding of Radar Magazine. Gawker manages to call the magazine "interesting and increasingly excellent" with a straight face. Now, I realize if you don't live within five square miles of Rockefeller Center, you've probably never heard of Radar, much less read the thing, so let me fill you in based on the few times I flipped through it on the newsstands: It makes Us Weekly look like The New Yorker. Good riddance. (It's died before, though, so, like the knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, we probably haven't seen the last of it.)
