How the cover gets made

Bloomberg Businessweek (Asia) - - CONTENTS -

① “Our cover story is an in­ter­view with the pres­i­dent.”

“What’s the in­ter­view about?”

“It touches on a few dif­fer­ent things, like his daugh­ters and what he would do in the pri­vate sec­tor, but mostly it’s about the econ­omy.”

“It’s funny to think of Obama hav­ing a nor­mal job. Maybe the cover should be his hy­po­thet­i­cal ré­sumé. It could have all th­ese bor­ing bul­let points, and at the bot­tom it could look like he scrawled some­thing at the last minute, some­thing like ‘P.S. Folks, I helped save the gosh darn econ­omy, OK? Now gimme this dumb temp job, please!’ It would be funny, be­cause it makes him seem weird and des­per­ate like the rest of us.”

“Maybe we should take a photo of him, since he agreed to a shoot.”

“Ah, I wasn’t ex­pect­ing that, based on our track record.”
