Does anyone else believe in Magazine Karma? Its a theory of mine that at every point in time there is a hot magazine which carries the buzz, the juice, the spirit and community of a very important yet heretofore unidentified community, who can bond and communicate only through the new publication. Prior carriers of Magazine Karma (MK) would be Esquire long ago, Manhattan Inc.
