Colbert's Newsweek Letter

The new issue of Newsweek guest-edited by Stephen Colbert is now on stands. Don’t tell Michael Kinsley but, judging from Colbert’s editor’s letter, it may be kind of funny! The issue is about Iraq. “I know what you're thinking: ‘Isn't the Iraq War over?’” Colbert writes. “That's what I thought, too.” Describing his responsibilities, Colbert writes, “I set the editorial agenda, assigned stories and yelled at Peter Parker to get me more photos of that web-slinging vigilante, Spider-Man. He's a menace! Most important, I sent NEWSWEEK's reporters to find out whatever happened to Iraq. Unfortunately, this meant cutting the cover story they had planned: ‘Hey, Have You Heard About This Thing Called “Twitter?”’”
