This is desperately sad news.

Well, keep in mind, NGM is still to be printed + mailed to subscribers and contributing members. It's being taken off newsstands -- a place it never used to be from 1888-1996-ish. The publication is not currently cancelled.

All true, but laying off almost all of your writers is not a good sign.

Nope, I know it's awful -- a long time coming and I've been dreading & expecting it. I only clarified because I see a lot of people elsewhere online who are reacting that they think the entire magazine is folded and has just ceased to exist.

Sad news indeed.  Nothing lasts forever, but I was hoping that the Nat Geo would outlive me.  Now, maybe not.

. . . well, my subscription expiration date shows November 2059 -- I want what's been promised!

You are correct Scott, an expected event.

And to recall - publications had reached 10 million at one time, now down to 1.7 million.

The beginning of the end.

So, I'll say it: it's like everything Disney has touched has been fouled...

*grumble*  

(don't get me started on Disney . . . I wasn't happy w/ the 20th Century Fox relationship NGS had either!)
