Here's a long and descriptive but fun article about America's one time favorite satire magazine: https://getpocket.com/explore/item/a...t-newtab-en-us


There were a great many things I did not know about MAD but reading about brings back good, humorous memories.

Thank you for that link. I was very young during its heyday and didn't appreciate that there were actual writers creating the satires. Such is youth!

What passes for satire these days? Mean spirited caustic remarks lacking insight. Just one more component of society that we have lost.
