Gourmet, the standard-setter for all good things culinary/travel/hot ingredients and inside dining tips, will publish a final issue in November.  It hurts to think about the great team packing up this week, just as the glowing candy-apple red October issue slides through mail slots around the world.  Mine came today.  Sad, stunned, and angry – as many readers are, I am sure – to lose this magazine that we have come to depend on for food and travel insights. Ruth Reichl and her competent team have innovated and kept my old favorite (read: twenty years of issues to devour each month) up to date in both content and style. In the New York Times article today about three Conde Nast magazines closing, it appeared to be a clinical, not emotional decision: all about the bottom line. That’s it now, no mercy.  Let me cool down before tapping another word.
