Old but new international weekly.

If you haven't checked out the new weekly editions of the Christian Science Monitor, you should.
The paper has transformed itself into a daily Web site and a weekly magazine. At first I was leery of losing my daily fix of international and national news that wasn't all AP and briefed or the NYT spin. But the CSM seems to be pulling it off. The cover story this week is an analysis of the Obama administration so far. Pretty good stuff and interesting to watch how the CSM has converted their operations. My neighbor is an avid reader and an avid reader of the Monitor, his first reaction on the first issue was, "Ho hum." But he did say issue No. 2, this one on Obama was more interesting and compelling.
The reporting has short-form narrative style and the photos are really well-done. Check it out if you get a chance.
