I'm a sucker for those "impulse buy" periodicals you always see when you standing in the checkout line at Walmart, Target or Wegmans.
No, I'm not talking about the credibility-bending News of the World ("WWII German U-Boat Surfaces in New York Harbor - Crew Believes They're Still at War") or any of those celebrity-chasing rags ("(Insert Name Here) Enjoys Hot Night in Hot Tub While Spouse Is on Movie Location").
I'm referring to those often-cool "special issues" that National Geographic, Time and Scientific Americanseem to be doing with increasing frequency.
Just last week, in fact, I couldn't resist buying a National Geographic special called "Wonders of the Ancient World."
And I'm glad I did.
