I was thrilled to hear, a few months ago, that The Baffler would become a more frequent treat. This dyspeptic journal happily eviscerated the corporate conceits of the dot-com boom and bust. But as founder Thomas Frank moved on to book writing, The Baffler’s publication schedule dropped off, with a year or more passing between issues. Now with some new staff and contributors, each, no doubt, with their own axes to grind, publication is supposed to become more regular. The Web site doesn’t provide further details. But after years of financial self-dealing, chicanery and collapse the next issue can’t come out soon enough!
