We remember magazines that have bit the dust--and defunct magazine *features*--notably Esquire's "Dubious Achievement Awards." This annual satire on the year's vice and folly is much needed today.

Surely an award would have gone to the Keystone Pipeline. And to Saudi Arabia, for joining the Paris march celebrating freedom of the press.

We still have CONN HALLINAN's "Are You Serious?" Awards. We'll read some. Plus another take on the Keystone Pipeline by singer DAVID ROVICS.
"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "benign neglect") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
Previously broadcast, as NWN #361, in February 2015
