Life mag has always been famous for its great photography — back in the old days, by legends like Alfred Eistenstaedt and Margaret Bourke-White and Cornell Capa. So it's nice to see that in its latest incarnation — as a thin, flailing, weekly newspaper insert — Life continues that tradition of groundbreaking images. Like this week, for example, when it splashes on its cover perhaps the only unattractive picture we've ever seen of anchorhunk Anderson Cooper. He looks so sad, so wrinkled, so haggard, so in need of moisturizing. Oh, cheer up, little Andy. You'll be back in dapper Details photo spreads in no time.

Or at least so we really, really hope.
