    While GQ is no doubt a good magazine, for it to win Magazine of the Year is a stretch of someone's imagination.

    I have a lecturer who judges this magazine from one mediocre issue and one bad comment from a student (he'a a guy and he said he didn't like it), and likens this to the male magazine equivalent of Grazia (in a baaad way), even though I've told her that GQ has constantly won awards for their design.

    sigh. That makes me lose my respect for her a little.
