When reporting on events, writers and editors always need to be mindful of when the reader will receive the publication. This is especially critical for a monthly magazine like CEP. An event that is considered breaking news when we experience it or write about it will no longer be news by the time you get the issue. The future as I’m writing this (at least a few weeks of it) will be the past when you read it. That’s why we sometimes don’t write about what’s really on our minds.
For instance, I wrote the December editorial in mid-November, around the time of our office Thanksgiving pot-luck lunch. You would have thought I was a bit strange if I had wished you a Happy Thanksgiving in an article you were reading in December. That doesn't mean we always play it safe.
