I can’t believe that Condé Nast’s business mag Portfolio has shut down without even yanking editor-in-chief Joanne Lipman and trying a new topper. (Like Peter Kaplan.)

I said from the beginning that the idea was good but its execution was awful. Take, for example, all those blowjob covers on the Big Media moguls: totally worthless CEO porn ignoring the new intolerance for corporate greed. File this under the subject of, “If Only…”
