I swear I didn't reach for it voluntarily. It just crawled into the cart on its own. Honest. One minute I'm standing there in the checkout line waiting to pay for a David Sedaris book and thinking "Someone should reward that company for being the only muckrakers left" and the next thing I know I'm sitting in the Pizza Hut express drinking a cherry coke and reading a tabloid.
Oh, well. I now have something in common with the S.O.'s 86-year-old aunt Ingrid besides a love of quilting, although I'm not sure my buying one issue matches her lifelong addiction.
You know, though, after flipping through it I have to say the most amazing thing about this issue of the Enquirer isn't politics or Palin at all -- it's that Erik Estrada is still considered newsworthy.
