Newsweek is just not the same...  
Anna Quindlen recently retired from writing the Last Word at Newsweek. While she had a lovely last column explaining why it was the right decision for her, I already miss reading her every other week... And example of her brilliance:

"As a Catholic schoolgirl I supplemented the obligatory 'Lives of the Saints' with the biographies of the famous women, searching for the possibility of a future that did not include an apron. The pickings were slim: Elizabeth Blackwell, Florence Nightingale. Some of the women I learned about then are still among my heroines, especially Elizabeth I. I remain a fan of world domination and red hair."
