What Do These Three Mags Have in Common: Juggs, Hustler, & Reason?

|

So I just came back from a great Cato Institute book panel built around Reason contributor Maia Szalavitz's excellent new expose, Help At Any Cost: How the Troubled-Teen Industry Cons Parents and Hurts Kids.

The respondent was Rolling Stone writer Evan Wright, who is also the author of Generation Kill, an account of being embedded with the US Army during the invasion of Iraq.

After the event, he told me that the soldiers in the Humvee he rode in had copies of three magazines: Juggs, Hustler, and … Reason.

NEXT: Obligatory 4/20 Pot Post

  1. Sure he wasn’t just riding with kwais?

  2. Well, the picture of Nick near the front IS kind hot…

  3. It makes sense to me. Reason is intellectual pornography of the most explicit variety – and I do mean that as a compliment.

  4. The funny thing is, Wright’s a very well-respected, award-winning investigative journalist.

    And he got his start at Hustler.

  5. Obligatory Reason Pillow Girl wisecrack!

  6. I skimmed part of “Generation Kill” a few days ago – it looks like a good read, but certainly it’s not a Rolling Stone policy work or anything. Mostly just portraits of various soldiers and (occasionally funny) descriptions of what those soldiers are doing while deployed to the sandbox. In other words, a fun read but not anything particularly insightful regarding the larger issues. (I could be wrong, I didn’t get to the back of the book because the store was losing, but I am going to buy and read a copy based on my assessment of its entertainment value.)

  7. I only read reason for the articles.

  8. Generation Kill was about Marines. Specifically, it was about a recon unit.

  9. There has been many a time when I have been porning and working my MANSHAFT, but got bored in the middle of it, and read Reason instead. Does that make me weird?

  10. Good for Maia. Those private gulags are the ultimate reductio ad absurdum of the “for the children” mentality. The running grudge against WWASP is pretty much the only part of the post-venture capital Salon I respect.

  11. I really enjoyed Generation Kill. One Bullet Away — by Nathaniel Fick, the competent officer in that book – is also good.

  12. “Rolling Stone writer Evan Wright”
    Since when does Rolling Stone employ writers? Can we safely assume that an orangutan escaped the Rolling Stone offices after churning out another “Bush is naughty” piece?

  13. Actually, Rolling Stone has employed some very well-known writers, such as PJ O’Rourke and the late Hunter S Thompson.

  14. I only read reason for the articles.

    I only read juggs for the tits.

  15. I only read Hit&Run for glimpses of the Reason Pillow Girl.

    and Linguist mentioning her bodacious ta-tas,
    and Jennifer talking about taking showers.

  16. Juggs? Hustler?!? No way…our troops are decent, wholesome, God-fearing boys. Sean Hannity told me so…

  17. HEY!!! Those links relating to Juggs and Hustler are NOT work-safe!!!

  18. What Do These Three Mags Have in Common: Juggs, Hustler, & Reason?

    They’re all once-interesting magazines which now content content inferior to that which can be found on the Internet for free?

  19. I’m cancelling my subscription to Juggs!

    – Josh, more of a Club man

  20. and Jennifer talking about taking showers

    Um, and in this fantasy, does she whisper in your ear and never shut the fuck up, ever?

  21. HEY!!! Those links relating to Juggs and Hustler are NOT work-safe!!!

    I figured enough. I wasn’t going anywhere near them. 🙂

  22. I’m sure they just read Reason for the articles. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

  23. Generation Kill was about Marines. Specifically, it was about a recon unit.

    Number 6 – True that. Like I said, I SKIMMED the book just as the bookstore was about to close.
