Spring of 2004. Optimistic talk of the then-upcoming election, pessimistic talk about climate changes killing us all, and a satirical piece about how the existence of homosexual marriages may end the human race. Talk of Kerry, talk of Nader, and talk of how much we all hate George W. Bush. Full size, 20 pages. <br /><br />
Winter of 2004. This issue opens up with a few stories and articles about the reelected Bush, from various angles (why it sucks, why we should still be positive….) From there it goes into a rather depressing (yet still humorous) account of what it’s like to be a substitute teacher in the Chicagoland high schools. Other stories include subjects like tuberculosis, Hiroshima, and predictions of the future! Full size, 20 pages.
Spring ’05. Lots of serious stuff in here, topics like the end of the world, the fighting in Iraq, and the Cold War, but also some lighter pieces, such as the article on Hunter S. Thompson. Also plenty of jokes and satire, as well as the general cynicism and sarcastic nature that goes along with any issue of JGQ. Oh, and of course the recollection of Grant’s dream about Martin Scorsese. Full size, 20 pages. <br />
