What's the story on all the funny typography on the cover this week? It's just our way of noting that our Issue No. 11 happens to fall on 11/11/11 – a confluence which won't occur again for some 400 years, when we're scheduled to publish Vol. CDXXXI, No. 11, on Nov. 11, 2411.

Meanwhile, find the eleven elevens on this week's cover, and win, if not a prize, at least the undying admiration of our proofreaders.
