Tomorrow’s cover today: a useful debate has begun about America’s biggest domestic challenge, but it is comically shallow.

Do a Marx Bros. cover next week, guys.

Farewell Earthlings. North Korean state media has announced the death of leader Kim Jong Il. The Economist has featured him several times on our covers since 2000.

Rocket man.

Love the reuse of the exact same image in the last two. Sorta feels magical.

TIME’s 2011 Person of the Year is The Protester

An obvious choice. But a great one.

This week’s euro-meteor is just the latest of many Economist covers devoted to the impending European debt crisis. The first was in May last year—no few inventive depictions of doom and despair have followed. Browse more (and read the stories) at this link.

Today in reminding people that yes, The Economist actually does cover “boring” international news on its cover. A reminder that suddenly seems relevant because of this whole fracas.

Tomorrow’s cover today: our European cover suggests that the markets are not the euro’s only threat. Voters may be too.

Cover of the week. Brilliant execution.

The cover of next week’s issue. Read our Steve Jobs coverage: http://nyr.kr/mPLCkE

Not bad. Think our favorite so far is Newsweek, though.

Some clarification on the dramatic bin Laden ops photo
"Sheepishly concerned": The Obama administration released this photo of the President and his team watching the operation to kill bin Laden, shortly after the announcement of his death. It’s a very striking image, but Secretary of State Clinton has come clean about what she thinks the cause was of her dramatic, hand-over-mouth gesture: “I am somewhat sheepishly concerned that it was my preventing one of my  early spring allergic coughs. So it may have no great meaning whatsoever.” source

Emphasis on the “sideshow”: NY Daily News clowns up Trump
Sideshow Don is grinning: The ever-outrageous New York Daily News had some fun with the war of words between Donald Trump and David Plouffe (or, really, between Trump and anyone/thing affiliated with Barack Obama). At least it’s a smiling picture? (EDIT: The cutout of Trump’s hair is easily the worst we’ve ever seen.) source

Can anyone make out the United States on this map?
We think this is the United States. It looks like it has the outline of the U.S. But for some reason, there’s all this weird white stuff on top of it clouding out most of the details. Can anyone figure out what’s going on here? (thanks identitymisplaced) source
