Presumably Redmond, Washington, where they think they know what's
best for you.

Almost everyone except for newspapers. Harper's and The Atlantic
have been printing it since the '60s, The New Yorker since the
mid-1980s. The N.Y. Times has only printed it once, in 1998
(Starr Report), but it has appeared in Time and Newsweek.
