In the year 2525, if Man is still alive, if television can survive—there’ll be some late-night comedian telling Bill Clinton jokes. And some editor staring at a blank screen, up against deadline, without a clue.
Well, World Oil has a new publisher, Ron Higgins. Ron is a 35-year veteran of this industry, has earned the promotion, and I look forward to working with him in making a good magazine even better. The occasion did prompt me to create a new joke:
How many publishers does it take to change a light bulb?
Apparently five, but the light bulb never gets changed, because they spend all their time holding down the editor, who just doesn’t want to change anything.
A long editorial in the Jan. 8 issue of The New Yorker was sent to me by our new contributing editor, Arthur Berman, who will be writing the Exploration Column beginning next month (and who’s eminently qualified to write it).
