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.

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.

Spotted by a reader in a Florida public library. Do not mess with these librarians.

You would expect economists to be able to afford this magazine without having to go to such measures.

Yay dead trees: Egypt’s newspapers still going strong amid protests
If you’re like us, you’re utterly curious about how news outlets in Egypt are covering some downright historic news for them – and with most other outlets out of commission, they’re playing an immensely important role in keeping Egyptian citizens informed. Fortunately for us, The Economist is all over this, with copies of a number of newspapers in the region. Above is Al Masry Al Youm, an independent newpaper known for being critical of the Mubarak regime. Since we’re guessing you don’t read Arabic, that headline says ”Conspiracy amid security forces to support chaos.” They have a bunch of others, if you’re curious. source
