ANOTHER URBAN LEGEND BITES THE DUST….Following up on a burning question from last month, is it really true that green magazine covers are “newsstand death”?

If I had a nickel for every story that turned out that way, it would be me handing out billion dollar checks for mass vaccination programs, not Bill Gates.
