I just received a copy in the mail in the mail!
It's the world turned upside down.
Care to share what part of it is "upside down". I've not gone through it as thoroughly as you obviously have.
I believe the assertion is that the fact that he received on in the mail is evidence of the world being upside down.

Well just from editing the magazine. And who knows what will happen in the future.
I finally got around to looking at this issue, and had to laugh. In the “product review” section, they are recommending Champion brand PowerFlex compression-style undershorts, but couldn’t seem to find a stock photo of the item described, so they just stuck in a picture of a pair of Under Armour shorts... took me all of 2 seconds to find a correct image...
Curiously, the Winter issue came months ago. It is listed as volume 68. It's the Fall issue which came in November, after the Winter issue, and it's...volume 69.
Apparently the seasons are also upside down.
Several years ago (10 or so?) I was told the editing job depended on low-bid contract rather than hiring for skill. My appreciation for the magazine died after after noticing examples of main-body text published later that year in a variety of font sizes and column spacing.
I agree that an editor should be hired based on skill and experience, not by low-bid contract. FYI, I'm not an editor and am just a freelance illustrator/graphic designer so I kind of understand the problem you're seeing. Maybe things have changed now compared to several years ago, otherwise consistency is the most important aspect when it comes to editing or magazine/book page layout design.
