Oh, No! We Live in a Capitalist Economy!

Mike Smith, 7/19/13:
Magazines are non-profit operations; they have no interest in increasing their circulation and their writers always desire their stories to be read by as few people as possible.

To be blunter: everything a magazine does is to sell copies. A magazine is a business, and their product is copies of the magazine. This is not a difficult concept to grasp.

Smith cartoons for the Las Vegas Sun, which I am morally certain has never run a cover story because it expected to sell more copies based on that story -- no, sir!
