Lapham's Lap

The New York Observer has an article about our east coast weekend-intelligentsia magazines' plans for archive digitization.
Harper’s is currently in talks with three companies to digitize the magazine’s complete archives, which are currently stored in bound volumes behind glass cabinets in the office conference room.
Sounds like the setup for a heist movie. But the impetus for stealing these mags wouldn't be for money or as some kind of guerrilla act of defiance against WHITE MALE WRITERS. No. We'd steal because we want Lewis Lapham's love. "You get your precious archives back, Lewis, but you have to hold me! Smoke cigarettes and just hold me."
