If September's Vogue is 840 pages, and 727 pages are adverts ...

shouldn't the magazine be sold at a discount?

I love how the cover says 840 pages of fearless fashion (see here http://holycandy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2007/08/siennamiller-vogue.jpg ) ** thanks to Candy @ www.holycandy.com ** when, in fact, I'm getting exactly 113 pages of content created by something other than their advertizers (how much of that is Table of Contents, Editor's Note, and Contributors?). Seriously: I'll bet that that's less than the editorial content of the average issue, and yet the September issue costs more!

And sorry, Anna Wintour, but the issue is boring. Staid, knit-witted (the section on handknit pieces is hilarious, and not in a good way), and dull.
