Rolling Stone slips to number 69 in Thompson poll
11/27/2011 (updated 11/28/2011)

Rolling Stone, the popular music and related arts and culture magazine, dropped 50 places in Richard Thompson's annual assessment of periodical publications. When asked to comment on the sudden decrease in popularity, Thompson said, "It was a close-run thing for number 68, but I thought Cheese Gourmet Monthly just edged it for their terrific piece on Blue Wensleydale in the August issue. I placed RS above Woman’s Realm, which has had some fairly insipid knitting patterns lately." Rolling Stone were unavailable for comment.
