Life is Over, Again

This just in: Life magazine is dead. Again. The famed picture weekly folded in 1972 and was relaunched as a monthly in 1978, then folded again in 2000. In 2004 it was relaunched again as a Sunday newspaper insert. As you'll see here, the results were grim. In retrospect, launching a newspaper magazine at about the same time that the newspaper industry began imploding was...unfortunate timing. The newspaper version of Life was never much to speak of, but...boy, we'll never stop admiring that logo

Here's a question for everyone: Will Time Warner ever bring this title back again?
