Yes, this was a real cover. It's also kind of hard to imagine anybody running that headline in today's climate, although I imagine they took plenty of flak for it in 1986 too.

Forbs? What happened to the 'e'?

Fuuuu That formatting makes that article unreadable.

The situation with spending on education is much worse now than in '86, I could see Forbes or National Review running that headline.

Yeah, that's a "legacy" article, which means it's been kicked between different platforms and formats about a dozen times since it was first created. Articles as old as that get very little traffic and tend to be a really low priority for fixing.

I think the best thing I've seen recently on the internet was a guy replying to a super over the top, macho idiot, all meat diet type, and calling him "based and gout-pilled".
