Heeb, the irreverent Jewish magazine, suspends print publication

For Canadian subscribers and admirers, heck for all its subscribers and admirers, it is too bad to hear that the irreverent Heeb magazine is suspending its print edition; it is continuing online. Publisher Joshua Neman said:
Heeb Magazine has never been about making Jewish “cool.” What we are big believers in, however, is making Jewish fun. We believe that in a world in which Jewish periodicals outdo themselves in attempting to highlight just how endangered Jews are, there should be one Jewish media outlet that actually makes its readers smile. So whether online, or in print, we like to think that we can all still have a little fun—and don’t worry, Ahmadinejad will still be waiting when we’re done.

I think this should be seen as a change, not an ending. We need to help readers redefine the definition of "magazine."

Agreed, Wendy. The tag "closures" may be incorrect. I'm changing it to "web and print". Bo Sacks's definition of a magazine was, and continues to be: "paginated, edited, designed, periodic, permanent and date stamped" Do you agree with that?
