    Never bought a Rolling Stone magazine in my life.

    Don't see it in my future either.

    Because it's a worthless rag written by liberal hipsters who are still trying to maintain relevance long after Cobain splattered the contents of his skull all over a wall. Their opinion on anything, especially music, doesn't mean **** to me.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Some others have said basically the same thing, fair enough.

    As with Zimmerman, I'm prepared to wait until his trial, hear the evidence if it's not held in private, and watch the outcome before I condemn either the person or a magazine who puts his picture on the cover. I've seen pics of Osama bin Laden on the cover of Time, Newsweek, and any number of others - don't recall hearing this kind of hand-wringing and moaning then.

    Rolling Stone is about music not news and putting this punk terrorist kid on the cover like he's Mick Jagger just rubs me the wrong way.

    That's what liberals do. Nobody is ever accountable for themselves.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Rolling Stone is no longer just about music - hasn't been for a long, long time.

    Yes - I remember, somewhat, them doing an investigative piece on one of our generals.
