The Haunting Afghan Girl photo first appeared on the June 1985 cover of National Geographic.
The boobies, I always skipped to the boobies! but if you were a curious boy National Geographic was more than an “allowed” blue magazine–it was a passport to the world.
The National Geographic Society and their magazine and the have been a pillar of excellence, I’m sure there were a few hiccups along the way when they didn’t get something right, since 1888.
The iconic yellow bond cover, the incredible photo-essays and a cornucopia of articles covering human culture have been part of our history, a uniquely American publication. I don’t know if it’s because of free internet boobies or the self-absorption of the smartphone generation OR just greed what prompted the sale of the multi media publication, all I know is that we have just become smaller–people failed journalistic excellence because they have lost the ability to wonder.
Now it’s at the hands of one of the most destructive, anti-free thinking publishers, Rupert Murdock, the magazine might as well been discontinued. Damn Murdoch To Hell!
