Attention, New Yorkerphiles

Today's war just not doing it for ya? This article, "The New Yorker at War," takes us back to the days of WWII, William Shawn, and telegrams. Vintage NYerphiles will recognize the spotlighted reporter EJ Kahn. I read Kahn's book, About the New Yorker and Me, a few years ago during a bout of strep throat, and it seemed to be mostly about him playing tennis in his spare time, but perhaps that was an effect of my high fever.
