You might be thinking of Newsweek. It went under and re-surfaced as an online only publication, and not a very good one.
Yeah probably. Newsweek became Newsweak and now is just online. Others like Colliers, Saturday Evening Post and Life are no longer sitting on coffee tables every week like they use to.

it's a given. The primary goal of any business is profit.
Many entities try to hide the fact that they are a business. See if you can think of a few

"Wake up Harold You've fallen asleep in front of the T.V. again"...Does anyone realize this thread has "morphed" from sailing to magazines??

. ......and now we’ve gone from magazines to TV’s! But if you have an aspect of sailing LV and this voyage that we haven’t already discussed, and you’d like it to be discussed, please feel free to lead us back in that direction by posting something about the sailing.

I'm currently heading down the East Coast on Bliss an NCL cruise ship. I've been impressed with their environmental operations. All cloth napkins. I was expecting the bars to be serving drinks in plastic cups. Nope they are served in glasses. I ate at an onboard speciality restaurant called Q. Delicious BBQ and country music spot. The water glasses looked like the ubiquitous plastic Red Solo Cups that people use in backyard BBQ's They are actually reusable and are washed for repeated uses. Greta should have jumped on one of these ships doing a repositioning. I think she might be pleased at how responsible they are these days. Expect the 30 to 40 knot winds we will be facing tomorrow off of Cape Hatterras will be a much nicer ride than on La Vagabonde too.

I actually have not seen any straws in drinks so far. Though I did actually see a wayward drink umbrella on the outside deck. Just made out of paper and wood not plastic.

People can say they want freedom, but offer them the keys to what chains them, a map to where they want to go,
And they'll turn it down for the cell they know

Re: Sailing La Vegabond

I'm going to guess the cruise ships find it easier or less expensive to discharge grey water from dishwashers than to store and dispose of plastic. Makes sense. Did cruise ships used to have plastic?
