A timeless episode, in which Erik sifts through a deep pile to give props to the Post‘s Ready to Rent advertorial supplement (“a humdinger of a publication”) and to Asian Fortune (“you can’t beat this magazine, folks”) for its snazzy, bloggy layout and its treatment of evergreen stories. The black sheep? None other than the InTowner, which Erik upbraids for flacking for a brokerage firm.

Inspirational quote: “Good on Asian Fortune for dealing with an ages-old issue here…this could be 1880 for all I know!”
