Hi, I am the magazine tearing boy on the plane.
See, I was behind on a couple of months worth of magazine reading so I had about 10 pounds (literally) of magazines in my carry-on baggage. Not being a fan of carrying around baggage longer than necessary I tear out the pages and keep the blade or two I find interesting and then dump the mag in the recycling bin.
Here are two interesting snippets I found:
Mother Jones Mag: If you could meet President Bush, what would you tell him? Russel Simmons: Fear is not the basis of governing this country.
From Mother Jones: May/June 2003
The last world leader who attempted to “rid the world of evil” - Pope Urban II in 1095- never figured out a good exit strategy either
