Tidings from my junk mail

TIDINGS from my junk mail:

Outside of the envelope: "All you need to know about everything that matters." Huh? Is this the Bible? The Koran? Consumer Reports? The number 42? Inside is an advertisement for a magazine called 'The Week'. I've never heard of it. A desultory Google search doesn't find it. It appears to be new. Sounds like Time or Newsweek, but with bad cover art. I'm not sure what the draw is here?

A week or so ago I got a junk mail advert from The Economist. I'm thinking of subscribing. If you don't know The Economist, it's sort of like Time and Newsweek, but with lots more content and a much more international scope. It's British.
