Perils of the preprint
Parade magazine revealed its preprinted nature this week. In the Jan. 21 issue, an article on Drew Barrymore mentions "long-term boyfriend" Fabrizio Moretti, the drummer for the Strokes. Their relationship is cited as evidence of Barrymore's turn toward career stability and personal maturity.

Alas, Barrymore and Moretti have broken up, as reported Jan. 10 in Spin magazine, among other places. Such mistakes happen when real life overtakes deadlines of magazines that are printed far in advance. But why didn't Parade's editors ask Marilyn Vos Savant (the so-called smartest person in the world) whether this relationship would last?
