Ever since he bid farewell back in February I've been watching my Sports Illustrated subscription wind down. It expires in December and I have no interest in renewing as long as Rushin's column isn't part of the mix. He's a uniquely talented genius who works the language like a magician.
So there I was, reading the August 6th issue of Time magazine when what do I see? An essay by my favorite writer, Steve Rushin! It's called Off the Deep End and it's classic Rushin.
There was no indication in the magazine that Rushin would be a regular contributor, so I hopped over to Time's website, did a quick search for his name and noticed there's now a second article available from him: How Friends Make You Fat. That one appears in the 8/13 issue which just arrived today. That's two issues in a row.
Time magazine, if you guys managed to sign Rushin up for a weekly column you can renew my subscription immediately!
