Editor's Note:  My first subscription was National Geographic--I was about 14 too.  I think my sister's was Seventeen magazine and I thought it was totally too old for her.  I don't think the Hunter's and Trapper's Guide benefited our man very much as his hunting efforts show but I never became an explorer either.  However,  Diana eventually did reach 17.

Gordon breaks up with his girl too following Allen's lead.  But I don't know that Gordon has anyone like Alice Warn waiting in the wings.

  1. Actually my first subscription was to HUMPTY DUMPTY and I always felt it was a consolation prize for our parents' divorce. It started coming as soon as we left Media, PA (spoiler alert). Anyhow, I did become 17 and couldn't believe that I never achieved cover girl status. I now subscribe to Mother Jones and Utne and Dwell and Real Simple which as my friend Tema would say "If you own more than one copy of "Real Simple" you are not keeping it real simple."
