Read but Dead
Joining the ranks of new economy magazines such as the Industry Standard and more standard fare such as Mademoiselle, Lingua Franca announced last week that it's closing its doors -- and its pages -- with the upcoming issue, already at the printers when the announcement was made. "While there's still a chance that a friendly rich person will ride in on a horse and save us, the chances of that happening are not very high," says one now-former editor.

I'm not sure what this means for Lingua Franca's sister publication University Business, but Lingua Franca was good. Really good. And I'll miss it. Thank you to all of the editors who made the magazine happen -- and for broadening my perspective on the state of higher education.
